Reading in the Brain – Approved for .7 ASHA CEUs!

Via Scoop.itHealthcare Continuing Education

This new CE course is based on the book Reading in the Brain: The Science and Evolution of a Human Invention (2009, 400 pages) which provides a clear and readable summary of current research on the neural basis of reading, with direct applications to instruction and treatment planning. By pinpointing the brain processes used to identify words, it clarifies both the normative course of literacy development as well as the defining features of dyslexia. This perspective is also used to identify the ingredients of reading intervention that can “rewire” the brain, and to help the clinician sort through continuing controversies about effective instruction. Surprising findings such as the way neurons have been “recycled” to allow our brains to read, and why mirror writing is the norm in early development, are also included.
