Expert Webinar and Panelist Discussion – Dyslexia: The Neuroscience of Early Identification & Intervention by Fumiko Hoeft and Margie Gillis
March 31, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
In recent years, findings from scientific research in education, psychology, genetics, and the neurosciences have increased our understanding of dyslexia and the importance of early identification and instruction for young children. In this webinar, Dr. Hoeft will discuss the different components of science and neuroscience informing the development of early screeners that assess school readiness and dyslexia risk in young learners. Dr. Gillis will continue the discussion on how young children identified as being at risk for dyslexia will respond to developmentally appropriate instruction.
Participants will learn activities and techniques that will engage children in learning all-important oral language and preliteracy skills to help ensure their readiness for school and future reading success. Dr. Hoeft will also provide demonstrations of a universal screener, APPRISE, developed by scientists at Curious Learning, UCSF, UConn, and MIT that is a free open-source mobile app measuring a range of literacy and cognitive skills in young children ages four to eight.
