  NJASP Spring Conference 2015

The Neuropsychology of Reading Disorders:

Diagnosis and Intervention

Steven G. Feifer, D.Ed., ABSNP

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.  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 to both educators and psychologists. The expected learner outcomes are:

●      Discuss the four universal truths of reading and explain why relying solely upon IQ scores, or a curriculum based measurement approach, can be misleading when identifying reading disorders in children.

●      Discuss four subtypes of reading disabilities from a brain-behavioral perspective, and link scores of evidenced based interventions and relevant classroom strategies to address each subtype.

●      Introduce the Feifer Assessment of Reading (FAR) battery as a more viable means to both assess and re-mediate reading disabilities in children from a brain-based educational perspective.

School Psychologists: Please join us and bring your administrators and school specialist colleagues to this informative and timely workshop given the recent passage of three new dyslexia-related laws in New Jersey.
