Cape Cod Two-Day Seminars

Language-Based Learning Disabilities and the Neuropsychological Evaluation (Cape Cod)

This seminar focuses on identifying students with language-based learning disabilities (LBLD); understanding the differences between LBLD and a non-verbal learning disability (NVLD); and understanding/interpreting the evaluation process, including neuropsychological, educational, and speech-language testing. Topics will also include how to interpret the scores (what it all means and what the specific tests measure), which services are available, and how to develop practical teaching strategies and techniques (remediation vs. accommodation). A brief overview of receptive/expressive language disorders will also be addressed.

Upon completion, participants will be able to identify and:

  • define the characteristics of language-based learning disabilities, non-verbal learning disabilities, ADHD, receptive/expressive language disorders, executive functioning
  • understand the evaluation process
  • understand and interpret neuropsychological evaluations, including cognitive testing, academic/achievement testing, speech-language testing, psychosocial testing and perceptual-motor testing
  • analyze recommendations on neuropsychological evaluations and how to link them to effective remediation needed for teaching children with language-based learning disabilities

LEVEL

Ideal for regular/special education teachers of all grade levels who may have limited previous exposure to neuropsychological evaluations and need to increase their knowledge and understanding of the tests and testing results. This course may not be appropriate for licensed school psychologists or speech-language pathologists who are already very familiar with these evaluations.

Teachers Say...

“I love that Melody gave us written reports to take and to help support us in writing reading reports. Having the neuropsychologist come in as well was so knowledgeable and fascinating to hear their view and perspectives in learning disabilities.”

Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, and Word Study

Phonemic awareness and phonics are two foundational prerequisite skills for reading development, but current research suggests that word study may be a more appropriate approach for older students.
