2017 Reading, Literacy & Learning Virtual Conference

T21 - The Contribution of Distinct Reading and Cognitive Skills to Reading Comprehension in Students With Dyslexia

Nov 9, 2017 2:00pm ‐ Nov 9, 2017 3:00pm

Standard: $20.00


This presentation presents the results of two research studies that examined the relationship between reading skills (i.e., oral and silent fluency) and cognitive skills (i.e., phonemic awareness, rapid naming speed, short-term and working memory) and their relationship with reading comprehension. Both studies utilized elementary students attending a school that provided intensive remediation for students with dyslexia. Participants learn to understand the unique contribution of neurocognitive skills to reading so they can develop effective literacy interventions for their students with dyslexia.

Learning Outcome:

  • RESEARCH: Examine research findings and implications for practice relevant to students with dyslexia and other language learning disabilities.
