The Neuropsychology of Reading Disorders
The Neuropsychology of Reading Disorders
This is one of workbooks by DeFina and Feifer which discuss both language-based and non-language-based disorders from a brain-based education model of learning. They are intended for school psychologists, occupational therapists, speech pathologists, special educators and school administrators. They use cutting-edge research from the neurosciences to understand the various brain mechanisms involved in written disorders and reading disorders in children. The model of learning used ties in efficiently with appropriate educational strategies for each subtype. The goal is to help educators develop a working knowledge the neural processes involved in the highest level of human communication. There is a growing body of research stemming from the neuropsychological literature suggesting that children who have not mastered the phonemic code to reading by age 10, may never acquire these skills without intense interventions. This book is designed to provide psychologists and educators with a new and more effective paradigm for understanding and remediating reading disorders in children. Key chapters for the Reading Workbook include * Ten pitfalls of discrepancy model * Higher cortical functioning * Neural circuitry of reading * The 90 minute Dyslexia evaluation * Teacher checklist Dyslexic behaviors * Remediation strategies for Dyslexia. This book was voted the neuropsychology “publication of the year for 2000” by the National Association of School Psychologists. P308 1999
