ESPED 6165 Dyslexia: Neurobiology, Assessment, and Intervention

This course focuses on current research on dyslexia.  Course participants will investigate the neurobiology of dyslexia, appropriate screening tools, and specialized instruction. Advances in brain research will inform our study of dyslexia and appropriate classroom instruction. Participants will examine norm-referenced and informal assessments to include a lens of students who are culturally and/or linguistically diverse. Technologies to support students with dyslexia will also be reviewed. Participants will develop a case study with appropriate interventions.
