Recent Advances in Understanding Word-Level Reading Problems: Implications for Assessment and Effective Intervention

Reading is a complex process that involves quickly and accurately recognizing words, understanding the meaning of words, and making sense of their meaning in context. Students identified with reading difficulties most often struggle with word reading.

During this on-demand webinar Dr. David A. Kilpatrick, author of Essentials of Assessing, Preventing, and Overcoming Reading Difficulties, discusses the importance of understanding the nature of word-level reading development and word-level reading problems in order to accurately assess reading difficulties and implement effective interventions.

Watch the webinar to learn:

  • How children learn to read words and why some struggle
  • Why some commonly used intervention approaches provide limited benefits for weak readers
  • Intervention approaches that studies have shown to yield very large reading gains for students with word reading difficulties
