F1 - Evidence-Based, Research-Based, Consensus-Based, or Anecdotal Support for a Dyslexia Treatment Method: What's the Difference and Why Should You Care?

Nov 10, 2017 8:30am ‐ Nov 10, 2017 9:30am

Standard: $20.00


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.

Learning Outcomes:

  • 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.
