The term evidence-based is popular with reading instruction programs, but what does it mean for something to be evidence-based? Do all programs that claim the title meet the standard? In this session, Dr. Tim Conway, a research neuropsychologist with 30 years of experience with dyslexia, presents a working definition of evidence-based and provides criteria for judging what type of evidence for effectiveness a program actually has. He provides a clear understanding of which type of support is most meaningful and the merits and weaknesses of other types of support.
RESEARCH: Examine research findings and implications for practice relevant to students with dyslexia and other language learning disabilities.
RESEARCH: Understand how genes, brains and contemporary culture contribute to learning disorders and develop effective strategies to support each child’s success both in school and in life.
