2016 Reading, Literacy & Learning Virtual Conference

W6 - Orthographic Processing: Progress in Understanding a Critical Dimension of Reading Development and Reading Disability

Oct 26, 2016 1:00pm ‐ Oct 26, 2016 4:30pm

Standard: $20.00


Phonological processing in reading development and dyslexia has received far more attention to date than orthographic processing, even though reading and spelling require specialized visual-orthographic learning, memory, and recall. In this symposium, presenters will discuss clinical and experimental research findings regarding the nature and role of orthographic learning in both normal and dyslexic students, with the goal of helping educators, diagnosticians, and policy makers improve assessment practices, guidelines for identification of students, and instruction.
