The Neuropsychology of Reading Disorders:

Diagnosis and Intervention

 

Steven G. Feifer, D.Ed., NCSP, ABSNP

 

Doubletree by Hilton

990 Hilton Heights Road

Charlottesville, VA 22901

  

This workshop will examine reading from a brain-based educational perspective, and classify developmental reading disorders into four distinct subtypes. There will be a discussion matching each reading subtype with scores of evidence-based interventions. The use of neuropsychological assessment addressing multiple cognitive constructs including phonological processing, working memory, executive functioning, and orthographical processing will be discussed as the primary means to both assess and remediate learning disorders in children. Lastly, the Feifer Assessment of Reading (FAR) battery, a comprehensive and innovative new reading test designed to examine the underlying cognitive and linguistic processes that supports proficient reading skills, will be introduced.
