Eastside CHADD: Tuesday May 17, Thinking about Dyslexia - Decoding to Comprehension

Wednesday, May 4, 2016

Barbara Bennett, M.A., Educational Therapist, Educational Consultant, ADHD Coach, brings us the latest evidence-based information about best practices for reading intervention for dyslexia. Ms. Bennett began her professional life in the dyslexia field at the Pediatric Reading and Language Clinic, University of California, San Francisco. As a private practice educational therapist, her life-long passion to teach students how to think, read, write, and do math from pre-school through adulthood is based upon the scientific and the clinical advances in understanding dyslexia. Tonight's conversation will address the "why" and "what" of reading assessments to guide effective intervention strategies. Learn about the interplay between ADHD, anxiety, executive function, language, and social thinking skills as they impact dyslexia remediation. What role does imagination play in creating skilled readers?
