Course Description

Why is attaining reading skill so elusive for some kids? If the student has sufficient intelligence, language and speech skill, what is hindering the process of reading proficiency? We are not born with the skill of reading in the brain. The developing brain is pruning necessary networks that will support the act of reading when the time comes.

This workshop will describe the different developmental aspects of building the skills necessary for reading decoding and comprehension. We will consider current research as well as the developmental building blocks for each of the networks required.

It is a “must have” workshop for professionals interested in creating academic proficiency in children considering school as an occupational function. The information provided will allow the therapist to plan effective intervention to bridge a students’ developmental profile in support of attaining reading proficiency as a goal. The need for a team approach will be emphasized as therapists expands their horizon in creating change that is productive and effective.

  • Explain 5 different components of reading proficiency.
  • List the involvement of 3 prominent sensory influences in the skill of reading.
