Teaching the Reading Brain: A Scientific Approach to Assessment and Interventions 2-Part Virtual Workshop presented by Michelle S. Storie, Ph.D. – 9-12pm
January 18, 2023 @ 9:00 am - February 2, 2023 @ 12:00 pm
This virtual presentation offered through the New York Association of School Psychologists will be in two parts. Participants should attend both sessions. See below for descriptions: Part 1 – Wednesday, January 18, 2023 This presentation will provide a brief overview of the scientific research into reading followed by an in-depth discussion of its implications for educators. This will include information on well-designed assessments to determine where the reading process is breaking down for students. The goal is to have educators evaluate and critique their assessment and intervention practices to ensure that they are aligning with current research. Participants will leave with knowledge of tools that could be incorporated into their assessment batteries and methods for evaluating the reading intervention practices in their districts.
Part 2 – Thursday, February 2, 2023 This presentation will build on the knowledge from part 1 in terms of how to advocate and make changes to current practices at the systems wide level in the assessment and intervention for reading problems. As part of the presentation, a curriculum evaluation tool will be shared that districts can use to evaluate current programs and their alignment with the research evidence on effective reading instruction. Examples of exemplar programs for reading instruction will be shared. Additionally, guidance on how to utilize progress monitoring tools and other data to differentiate instruction for different types of reading problems will be discussed. Eligible for 6 hours CEU and CTLE credit. If district pays, district approval must be confirmed prior to start of session.
