Word-Level Reading Problems: Implications for Assessment, Instruction and Intervention
The presentation will focus on how children learn to read words and why some children struggle. This knowledge will be used to design more educationally relevant assessments and to guide intervention recommendations. Studies consistently show that the most commonly used reading interventions provide limited benefits. However, research has also shown that there are approaches available that yield very large and sustained reading gains for weak readers.
