Course Overview

Join us for this half day workshop to learn about developmental and acquired disorders of reading in elementary school-age children. You will identify common reading disorders, differentiate common misdiagnoses (such as ADHD), differentiate types of reading and language challenges, and apply your learning to real-world clinical scenarios. Learn about pediatric patient presentations associated with reading and language challenges, engage in case study analyses, and self-assess clinical practices.


At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

 Define and describe disorders of reading (acquired and/or developmental).

 Differentiate between reading disorders and common misdiagnoses.

 Identify predictors of reading difficulty, and associated risk factors, from birth through high school.

 Understand the importance of acquired reading impairments in school aged children.
