“Anxiety in poor readers: Evidence, assessment, and intervention”
Monday 9th November 2020 – Live on Zoom!
Presenters: Professor Geneveive McArthur and Dr Deanna Francis
The goal of this workshop is to equip people with an understanding of the scientific evidence for mental health difficulties in poor readers (particularly anxiety), provide guidance on how to identify if a child with poor reading might be suffering from anxiety, and what treatment options are available for such children.
“Working memory and reading difficulties”
Wednesday 25th November 2020 – Live on Zoom!
In this half-day seminar, Dr Banales will discuss the methods of intervention for children with dyslexia, including the role of verbal working memory training in treating reading difficulties. She will also discuss the implications of poor working memory in the classroom and how these difficulties may be supported.
