Presenter: Steven G. Feifer DEd NCSP ABSNP

This webinar will provide educators and psychologists with an overarching framework for effectively diagnosing and treating reading comprehension disorders in children. There will be an overview of reading from a brain-based educational perspective, as well as a review of the neural underpinnings of literacy in children. Specific emphasis will be placed on frontal lobe functions such as executive functioning and working memory as the primary cognitive constructs that allow children to hold, manipulate, and self organize verbal information in an archived manner for more effective recall.
