Keynote session:  MARYANNE WOLF

Dyslexia, Deep Reading, and the Digital World

Research in cognitive neuroscience on how the brain learned to read provides a blueprint for understanding not only what is most important in early language development and cognition for later reading to develop., but also how best to teach reading to both typical and struggling readers. Information on what enhances phonological awareness, vocabulary development, and morphological-syntactic knowledge is critical for building the components of what will later become the reading brain circuit. The presentation will describe cutting edge research on the prediction of dyslexia subtypes and how targeted, multi-componential instruction best reflects what we know about how the reading brain circuit is formed. Discussions of best instruction will include new work by the author on “Deep Reading” and how essential it is to combine explicit, evidence-based approaches with work on fluency, comprehension, and deep reading processes like background knowledge, empathy, and critical analyses. In addition, the impact of digital culture will be discussed, with guidelines for both print and digital media use by young children and the development of what the author refers to as a “biliiterate reading brain”.

Session 1:  DINA LELAND

ADHD, Dyslexia and Everyday Life: Barriers, Overcoming, and Technology

This session is for adults with dyslexia.  It will address the everyday struggles of those living with ADHD and dyslexia. The discussion will focus on removing barriers associated with ADHD and dyslexia as well as strategies and the use of technology to help overcome their symptoms. ADHD and dyslexia can affect all areas of life. Fortunately, we live at a time when there are many strategies and technologies available to support those challenges.  The struggle of knowing you need to do things and not being able to do them, of knowing you know something and not having the time to demonstrate that knowledge can feel overwhelming.  There are many barriers faced by children and adults with ADHD and dyslexia. Strategies and technologies that are available to help remove barriers for those with ADHD and dyslexia will be discussed as well as what works in different situations.  How learning styles matter when finding the right support. We will discuss ways to help remove barriers, put effective strategies in place and use the right technology for barriers in order to overcome the symptoms of ADHD and dyslexia.

Session 2:  MARY WENNERSTEN

Active Engagement for Effective Reading Instruction

This session is appropriate for parents and professionals. It will provide the research on how students learn. They must be involved in the learning through action and reflection. This active and engaging session will provide participants engaging strategies and activities they can take back and use with their students during structured literacy lessons and parents may use them with their students during homework times.

To engage students, the teacher and parents must do more than lecture. While teaching the concepts adn skills, they must build a "scaffold" on which students can "hang" new ideas.  Anita Archer called this the "I do, we do, and you do".  When students are actively engaged, they focus on what is being taught and draw on their own experience and knowledge to better process new information.

Session 3: MARY WENNERSTEN

What Every Educator Needs to Know About Reading and Spelling

This session is appropriate primarily for teachers, but parents are welcome. This engaging session will provide participants the current information on “how” the brain learns to read, why some students have difficulty learning to read. Participants will also develop their understanding “what” it takes to teach K-5 students the foundational reading skills to be a successful reader and speller.  

The Purpose of reading is to comprehend text, but there are numerous influences on text comprehension.  To comprehend, a reader must be able to accurately read the text with automaticity, make sense of the words and language structures used in the text, context the content of the text with prior knowledge, and use strategies to monitor and repair comprehension.  The National Reading Panel (NRP) report in 2000 focused on five critical elements of reading:  phonemic awareness, phonics or decoding, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. Each of these five elements has a strong evidence based demonstrating its importance. This session will provide educators with the research and engaging strategies to use when instructing the five essential elements for reading instruction.

Session 4:  Q&A for Parents of Struggling Students

This session is more informal, and parents are encouraged to ask their own general questions. A panel will do their best to answer the variety of questions.
