Symposium Series- "The Eyes Have It: Understanding the Cognitive Processes Involved in Silent Reading"

Date & Time: 
May 19 2017 - 9:00am - 3:30pm

Welcome to our 2017 Stern Center for
Language and Learning Symposium! This year we are expanding our focus on
language to promote reading comprehension, cognitive processes involved in
silent reading, and technology-based interventions to support these areas that
are immediately implementable. Our presenters use current research to expand
your practice.


Struggling readers are slow to identify printed words,
yet skilled readers can recognize a word in less than one-quarter of a second.
In that time, the mind launches orthographic and phonological processes that accomplish word recognition. How do we do this?
This seminar explores key findings from eye movement research that illuminates
how word recognition happens during silent reading for meaning.

Participants will learn what readers’ automatic eye
reveal about questions that
are fundamental to assessing and teaching reading. How does reading speed
develop? Does phonology play a role in reading quickly or does it interfere
with reading quickly? What does it mean to recognize a word by sight? How does
orthography and phonology support fast and accurate word reading in adults? Is
the process different for children? How do dyslexic readers identify words?
Participants will learn how these research findings inform central challenges
in reading instruction such as developing reading accuracy and increasing
reading fluency. Finally, we will examine behavioral indicators of problems
with orthographic and phonological processing that might appear during a
reading assessment.

Cost: $300 for Series or $125 per workshop
