This workshop will examine reading and written-language disorders from a brain-based educational perspective. The primary objectives will be to classify language-based learning disabilities into distinct categories or subtypes based upon the neurodevelopmental profile of the child. There will be a detailed discussion linking each learning disorders' subtype with scores of evidence-based interventions. The use of neuropsychological assessment within a four-tier RTI model will be discussed as the primary means to identify specific learning deficits for children in both elementary and secondary school who do not respond to standard protocol interventions.
