The Language Basis of Dyslexia: Recent Research Findings & Educational Strategies
November 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$30.00
In this exciting, new webinar Dr. Hogan will share recent research findings on the
language basis of dyslexia with a focus on educational implications. Topics will include the language basis of dyslexia, and how dyslexia relates to childhood speech and language disorders. Dr. Hogan will also share critical information on working memory and word learning in children with dyslexia. Attend this session to become more familiar with some of the most current findings in the area of dyslexia. Walk away better equipped to plan testing, screening, and instruction for students at risk for, or already diagnosed with, dyslexia. As an added bonus, receive strategies for providing the right kinds of professional development training for colleagues in this area. This session is appropriate for those working or connected with individuals of any age, who are interested in furthering their knowledge in the area of dyslexia. This includes educators, clinicians, administrators, advocates, and parents alike. The Language Basis of Dyslexia: Dyslexia is a language-learning disorder but what does that mean in terms of early speech and language development? Dr. Hogan will overview the history of the 'dyslexia' diagnosis from its inception including the many
terms used and why it is often erroneously considered a medical diagnosis. Educational implications and strategies will include impacts from dyslexia screening laws and how to provide training to other professionals on the language basis of dyslexia. How Dyslexia relates to Childhood Speech and Language Disorders: Do all children with dyslexia have an early speech and/or language disorder? Dr. Hogan will provide longitudinal data on speech and language development from as early as 15 months old for children who were later diagnosed with dyslexia in 2nd grade. Early signs of dyslexia are present in speech and language development but some are subtle and many children with dyslexia do not have an early diagnosis of speech and language
disorder. Educational implications and strategies will include selecting an evidence- based measure to determine early risk for dyslexia and how to differentiate dyslexia from a developmental language disorder and speech sound disorder. Working Memory and Word Learning in Children with Dyslexia: What are the impacts of dyslexia beyond word reading deficits? Dr. Hogan will provide recent findings from a large National Institutes of Health study of working memory and word learning in children with dyslexia. These children have deficits beyond word reading including difficulty recalling sounds in working memory which affects listening, remembering, and word learning. Educational implications and strategies will include how to modify instruction to improve working memory and word learning. Dr. Hogan will draw on years of clinical experience and research studies to provide the latest findings on the language basis of dyslexia with concrete solutions to improve the early identification and intervention for children with dyslexia.
