This workshop will focus on both assessment and evidence-based interventions for students who struggle to learn to read and spell because of dyslexia.
Dr. Mather will address the importance of assessing different cognitive and linguistic processes, including:
- phonological awareness
- orthographic coding
- processing speed
- rapid automatized naming
- the phases of development of basic reading and spelling skills
- and the implementation of differentiated instructional methodologies for addressing specific types of reading and spelling problems.
In addition, she will describe the recently published Tests of Dyslexia (Mather, McCallum, Bell, & Wendling, 2023).
Topics include Tests of Dyslexia, Evaluation, Interpretation, and Intervention.
Dr. Mather specializes in assessment, reading, writing, and learning disabilities.
