WELCOME 2022 IDA Conference | Reading, Learning & Literacy

It has been 73 years since the first meeting of the Orton Society, or as we know it today, the International Dyslexia Association (IDA). The founding members started along a path that led to today’s greater understanding of dyslexia and the effectiveness of structured literacy instruction for all students. With your help, we will continue to widen and pave that path until everyone can read. One essential element of this work over the years has been IDA’s annual conference. This year we will celebrate the 73rd anniversary of IDA’s Annual Reading, Literacy & Learning Conference in San Antonio, TX. We hope you will join us in this long-standing tradition

Sessions will be authentic (no recycled programming!), inspirational (not overwhelming!), interactive (no talking heads!) and unexpected (did we mention premier content?). Aligned with IDA’s Knowledge Practice Standards (KPS), the 2022 agenda features topics in four conference content tracks:

FAMILY AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT FOCUS Family and community engagement sessions should provide information for individuals with dyslexia and their families. Sessions may focus on a common understanding of dyslexia and guidance for receiving high-quality interventions while fostering every individual’s well-being. Sessions may also include community engagement efforts for resources and models for strong collaboration among schools, families, and the community.

AUDIENCE Individuals with dyslexia and related learning issues, parents, families, advocates, organizations, and community leaders.

EDUCATIONAL LEADERSHIP AND POLICY FOCUS Educational leadership and policy sessions should focus on public policy and specific efforts for increasing the capacity of educational institutions to improve literacy instruction, which can lead to positive outcomes for all students, including those with dyslexia.

36

AUDIENCE Legislators, policy makers, Department of Education staff, superintendents, principals, literacy and assessment coordinators, higher education preservice faculty.


INSTRUCTIONAL PRACTICES FOR PRACTITIONERS FOCUS

AUDIENCE

Sessions for practitioners focus on the use of structured literacy practices to support students with dyslexia or to provide the type of instruction that prevents or ameliorates dyslexia. Sessions are not limited to word reading because we know dyslexia affects students in many domains. A session might cover a topic like writing, working with multilingual learners, issues of equity, or how to support students with attention difficulty. A list of keywords for possible topics that will interest practitioners is provided below. You may select up to three keywords that best describe the focus of your session to help us organize submissions for review.

General education teachers who can implement structured literacy to prevent dyslexia and Interventionists/dyslexia specialists/special educators who work with students with dyslexia individually or in small groups to support their specific needs. Instructional Level •

Early Childhood

IDA Awards

The International Dyslexia Association is pleased to present annual awards to recognize those active in the field of dyslexia and also those who struggle with learning disabilities, yet have reached great levels of achievement despite the challenges they face.

42 Register online at DyslexiaIDA.org


The Samuel Torrey Orton Award (Orton)

The Norman Geschwind Memorial Lecture (Geschwind Lecture)

The Samuel Torrey Orton Award is the International Dyslexia Association’s highest honor. The Award recognizes a person or persons who have:

When Norman Geschwind died of cardiac arrest on November 4, 1984, the Orton Society, (now the International Dyslexia Association; IDA), lost a member of its Board of Directors, a speaker of great note, the scientific mind behind the society’s Neuroanatomy Study, and a dear friend. Dr. Geschwind was Chief of Neurology at Beth Israel Hospital and was James Jackson Putnam Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School. He also held professorships at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Psychology and the School of Health Sciences and Technology. His interest in the work of the Orton Society stemmed from his research on the relationship between brain anatomy and behavior. To honor Dr. Geschwind’s memory, in 1985, the Orton Society established a Norman Geschwind Memorial Lecture Fund that is used to provide a speaker at the IDA Annual Conference. The speaker is to represent the broad nature of Dr. Geschwind’s interests in dyslexia and related disabilities and abilities. The legacy of his curiosity lives on. (Perspectives on Dyslexia, Winter 1985)

Made a vital contribution to our scientific understanding of dyslexia, or

Significantly enhanced and advanced our capacity to successfully intervene and assist people with dyslexia, or

Expanded national and international awareness of dyslexia, or

Demonstrated unusual competence and dedication in service to people with dyslexia

Barbara Wilson Margaret Byrd Rawson Lifetime Achievement Award (MBR) Barbara A. Wilson is the Co-Founder and President of Wilson Language Training, whose mission is to provide professional learning and ongoing support to literacy educators across the country. She has worked to improve the lives of individuals with dyslexia for over 35 years since her work at the Massachusetts General Hospital Reading Disabilities Clinic where she taught adults with dyslexia how to read. Barbara authored the Wilson Reading System® based on that work and reading research. In 1985, Barbara and her husband, Edward, co-founded the Wilson Learning Center for students who were unable to read due to dyslexia, working with individuals from early grades through adulthood. When a consortium of schools in the area asked her to work with their special education teachers, Barbara created a year-long certification process now accredited by IDA as an Independent Teacher Training Program for students with dyslexia. In 1992, after working in several schools and with the realization that most students could not afford to access the Center, Barbara and Ed co-founded Wilson Language Training with a mission to bring multisensory structured language instruction into public school settings. Since then, under Barbara’s leadership, WLT has trained thousands of teachers with Wilson certifications. The Wilson certification is also an integral component for several university programs that are also accredited by IDA. Barbara later authored two additional programs: Wilson Just Words® for older students with a word-level deficit and Fundations® for students learning to read in K-3 and now works with school districts to offer structured literacy following a multi-tiered system of support. Barbara provides a voice for students with dyslexia, with presentations—keynotes and workshops—at more than 300 national and international conferences. She has authored a chapter titled, “Instruction for Older Students with a Word-Level Reading Disability,” which is in the fourth edition of Multisensory Teaching of Basic Language Skills, edited by Judith Birsh. She has also consulted on several research grants for older students and was invited to the White House to speak to the President’s Domestic Policy Adviser on Education regarding the issue of literacy in America’s middle and high schools. And in 2015, she testified in front of the U.S. House of Representatives’ Committee in support of H.R. 3033, the Research Excellence and Advancements for Dyslexia (READ) Act, which was later signed into law. Barbara is a member of the Global Implementation Society and is dedicated to implementation. Barbara co-edited an International Dyslexia Association publication on this subject with an emphasis on how to bridge the gap between research, educational legislation, and classroom instruction. At Wilson Language Training, she assures that the principles of implementation science are incorporated into the literacy work with districts throughout the country. Barbara is currently serving on two IDA committees: the Fact Sheet Committee and the Multimedia Workgroup and provides professional expertise and consultation to other organizations dedicated to reading and dyslexia. Barbara has been awarded honorary doctorate degrees from two Massachusetts institutions: Becker College and Fitchburg State University. 48 Register online at DyslexiaIDA.org


Pat Roberts and Nancy Blair Excellence in Leadership Award Pat Roberts and Nancy Blair are the co-Founders and co-CEOs of AIM Institute for Learning & Research and AIM Academy. These two mothers, who connected more than 25 years ago to search for the best instruction for their daughters with dyslexia, founded AIM in 2006. AIM Academy, a school for children with language-based learning disabilities originally called Academy in Manayunk, opened its doors with 24 students. At the same time, the AIM Institute launched to support educators by providing professional training sessions, including training and certification as a Wilson Partner School. Pat and Nancy’s commitment to transforming and empowering lives through literacy is focused on evidenced-based instruction, fostering community and corporate partnerships, and identifying innovative methods to support learners who are prepared for the future. These core values have driven their leadership and vision over the past 16 years. AIM Academy just kicked off its 2022-2023 school year with 402 students, grades 1-12. AIM Institute now provides professional learning opportunities to educators and education leaders worldwide, including more than 15,000 educators receiving science of reading training and coaching in AIM Pathways, an IDA-accredited professional learning suite of courses aligned to the Knowledge and Practice Standards. AIM has established partnerships with state Departments of Education and higher education institutions across the country. Providing educators and students access to evidence-based research in the classroom and partnering directly with researchers has always been a key focus for Pat and Nancy. AIM was the first education partner in the Haskins Global Literacy Hub, supporting an in-school EEG Lab and neuroscience research study. Other partners for research include the Florida Center for Reading Research and Stanford University. Pat and Nancy, one an educator and one from the medical world, form a unique approach to education, research, and innovation. They have created an AIM team that is mission-driven to make a difference for all children while always envisioning the future of education for students. Pat is an educator and a businesswoman who has taught in regular and special education settings, and before co-founding, AIM created and led three successful education-related businesses. Nancy, who started her career as an intensive care nurse and was a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist, is a Wilson Credentialed trainer and a licensed academic reading specialist.

Noam Siegelman Early Career Award for Contributions to Research Award Dr. Noam Siegelman is a Senior Lecturer (equivalent to a US Assistant Professor) in the departments of Psychology and Cognitive and Brain Sciences at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Israel). Noam's research is concerned with reading, learning, and their intersection. In particular, his research aims to understand the immense variability that exists between individuals in their literacy skills in light of their learning capacities and the properties of their native language's writing system. This work is based on the development of computational tools that mathematically quantify writing systems in terms of their statistical properties, and the use of behavioral, eye-tracking, and neurobiological methods to unveil how readers differ from one another in their ability to utilize this rich statistical structure to read efficiently. His studies have shown that, indeed, readers vary substantially in their sensitivity to different types of regularities encompassed in their writing system, and that this variability has important implications for explaining reading skills as well as intervention gains in children with reading disabilities. Noam completed his BA (2011), MA (2014), and PhD (2019) at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His PhD dissertation under the supervision of Prof. Ram Frost focused on individual differences in statistical learning, namely, the mechanism underlying the human ability to extract regularities from sensory inputs. He conducted postdoctoral work (20182021) at Haskins Laboratories (CT, USA) with Profs. Kenneth Pugh and Jay Rueckl as advisors, supported by funding from the Rothschild Foundation and the Israel Science Foundation. This is where he became fascinated with reading and the prospect of understanding reading from a learning perspective. In addition to his faculty role at the Hebrew University, Noam is an affiliated Research Scientist at Haskins Laboratories and a member of the Haskins Global Literacy Hub.

Identifying At-Risk Bilingual Readers: A Systematic Review of Screening Tools Across Languages

Differential Nonword- and WordReading Co-development in Children At-Risk and Not-At-Risk for Dyslexia

Identifying at-risk readers among emerging bilingual students presents challenges that need to be addressed to avoid over- or under-identification of students who need reading intervention services. This presentation provides a systematic review of research on screening measures for emerging bilingual students of different language backgrounds, considering participant characteristics (e.g., languages spoken and age group), languages of the assessments, literacy components included (e.g., phonemic awareness, letter knowledge, vocabulary), and the evidence of validity. It highlights methodological considerations in developing screening measures and practical implications in interpreting the results.

This poster presents findings from a longitudinal study, exploring nonword and word reading co-development in children at-risk for dyslexia (n = 5,577) and their not-at-risk peers (n = 22,819) in first grade. The researchers find that nonword reading does not contribute to word reading growth in at-risk children. However, nonword and word reading co-develop and grow in conjunction in not-at-risk children. These results mean at-risk children fail to generalize word reading from nonword reading, which suggests they have difficulty adding new words to their word lexicon.

Japanese Early Letter Identification -Phonological Memory, Phonological Awareness, and RAN-

Morphological Processing in Children with Dyslexia and Typically Developing Readers

The primary goal of this study was to articulate and evaluate an organizational framework for the assessment of Japanese young children’s letter identification. Japanese Pre-K children (N = 44, 64.0±3.4) were assessed individually on phonological memory (nonword repetition), phonological awareness, and RAN (rapid automatized naming) reported to be important for letter identification performance. The focus was on the role of phonologicalmemory in letter identification. The score for nonword repetition was weighted according to Japanese bimora frequency data. Phonological awareness, RAN, and phonological memory significantly contributed to Japanese young children’s letter identification.

It is well established that phonological impairments are common in dyslexia, yet there is less information and little consensus on the nature of morpho-semantic processes in the disorder. Present work addresses this gap by examining neuro-cognitive bases of morphological processing in typically-developing readers and those with dyslexia. Children with dyslexia fail to engage key language regions of the brain when manipulating fine-grained derivational affixes, yet demonstrate robust activation for larger, more concrete semantic units. Findings inform literacy theories by suggesting an interaction between reading ability and sublexical word processes that are key to literacy development and its remediation in dyslexia.

The postsecondary transition experience of students with dyslexia: A literature review

Inception to Application: Structured Literacy within a Multi-Tiered System of Supports

Students with specific learning disabilities, including dyslexia, graduate from post-secondary institutions at a lower rate than their non-disabled peers. The transition from high school or secondary to post-secondary can be challenging for students, especially for students with dyslexia or other reading difficulties. This literature review examines the available published research on best practices for transition planning for students with dyslexia who are entering postsecondary education worldwide.

The first step is always the hardest. Armed with the WHY, it is time to focus on the HOW. Fueled by pandemic era learning loss, school leaders are beginning to overhaul their literacy programming to support equitable access to Tier 1 curriculum. This poster presentation details the authentic implementation process from balanced literacy to structured literacy in a public Title I school. Critical drivers to implementation success of the MTSS model, including screening assessment rigor, building needs assessments, core team creation, curriculum evaluation, and tiered instructional programming, are shared with attendees.

Examining the Influence of Visual Access to Articulatory Gestures During Grapheme-Phoneme Instruction

Navigating Standardized Tests and Transitioning from High School to College

To become a proficient reader and speller, children must acquire foundational decoding and encoding skills through acquisition of grapheme-phoneme correspondences (GPCs). This study examined whether access to the instructor’s articulatory gestures (AGs; i.e., visual, mouth cues) is an instrumental component of phonics instruction. That is, does visual access to AGs increase efficiency and maintenance of the acquisition of GPC? A multiple probe across behaviors with an embedded adapted alternating treatment design measured preschool children’s acquisition of GPCs across three conditions: (a) control, (b) strategic incremental rehearsal (SIR) with a masked instructor, and (c) SIR with an unmasked instructor. Results replicated within and across participants will be discussed.

Prepare high school students to embark on their next journey - college. Navigating the application process for the College Board and ACT can be tedious and difficult this seminar will explain it. Learn about the transition of accommodations from high school to college and how to set up your high school student for success. Do plans automotically transfer to college? Can parents go to their child's accommodations meeting? Does every college have accommodations? Will college be just like high school but without supervision? What should students with learning disabilities look for in their future college? All these questions and more will be answered at this session. Working with hundreds of students and helping them successfully transition to college life, Jennifer will help educators, parents, and teachers understand the ins and outs of the transition from high to college with learning disabilities.

Challenges in the Identification of Dyslexia Among English Learners

Assessment of Reading Fluency and Spelling Ability Using an Online Digital Curriculum

Despite changes in the identification of dyslexia in recent years, the rate of identification of dyslexia for English Learners (ELs) continues to lag behind that of monolinguals. Using a large sample of student data reported in the Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS) across two school years (n=4,692,688), data were analyzed to assess the rates of identification before and after the implementation of a mandatory screener in grades K and 1 alongside a state dyslexia handbook. The prevalence of dyslexia was found to be below the commonly reported rate of 5-17% for both monolinguals and English learners for both years. ELs were identified at a slower pace and later grade than their monolingual peers. Results from a survey delivered to school personnel exploring criteria and measures utilized in the identification of ELs provides insight into possible reasons for this discrepancy.

This session will provide a look into the urgency of Literacy for students with dyslexia through the eyes of a practitioner and through Ameer's story. Every educator and administrator needs a battle cry to work tirelessly for students. The type of work that requires us to constantly assess students and constantly resource our educators. It should be a never-ending cycle. After attending this session, attendees will be inspired to reach every child, raise their level of leadership, and smash the divide that holds back so many students with dyslexia.

Grade-level reading probes are currently the standard metric for assessing reading proficiency in both neurotypical students and those with dyslexia. Curriculum-based reading and spelling probes within a digital curriculum offer interventionists the ability to monitor student progress more closely and accurately than grade-level reading probes. As a direct result, interventionists are able to adapt faster to student needs and provide necessary differentiated instruction. Curriculum-based probes also provide measurable insight into student progress that may be overlooked when using grade-level reading probes.

Fun, Fast, Free Phonemic Awareness, and Phonics Training for Young Children

The Secret Life of Silent Letters and How to Make them Visible

Learning to name the letters of the alphabet and phonemic awareness are essential skills for reading. Play Roly helps children learn these skills in an age-appropriate manner, setting them up for reading success at school. Play Roly teaches phonemic awareness and beginning phonics skills with a playful learning activity for ages 3 to 5. Ages 3 to 5 are important because they are the optimal years to develop phonological and phonemic awareness, the essential first steps in reading. At least 25% of children fail to grasp these critical skills in early elementary classroom settings. Play Roly is free and available at www.playroly.org.

Linda Siegel & Lisa Sturdy DISCLOSURE STATEMENT: Presenter has no Financial or Non-Financial Disclosures to report.

There are countless English words that contain a letter that don't seem to have a purpose. They are often difficult for struggling students to remember and students are often left to memorize them. English is labeled as crazy and difficult to learn and English words like these can’t be “sounded out”. However, teaching students to understand the reasons for silent letters will not only help their spelling but deepen their understanding of how English works and improve their confidence in their ability to understand spelling. This workshop will equip participants with the information they need to understand why these silent letters exist while simultaneously providing an understanding of the English writing system they need to help their struggling spellers, while also providing practical strategies for the classroom.

Let the Games Begin: Games to Build Decoding Skills and Morphological Awareness

Deeper Learning: The Science of Reading & Teacher Preparation in Texas

The presentation will highlight direct instruction strategies for use in classroom or small group settings for teaching and reinforcement of decoding and morphological awareness skills. An essential component to internalizing spelling patterns and knowledge of morphemes is a structured spelling lesson focusing on one specific skill at a time. Educators will be introduced to a multisensory skill-based spelling lesson format and techniques for teaching decoding and word meaning through spelling. Additionally, a variety of engaging and interactive activities that can be incorporated into direct, multisensory structured literacy lessons to reinforce understanding and use of newly introduced and acquired skills will be displayed. Sample lessons and games will be available for perusal.

With the passing of Texas House Bill 3 in June 2019, a new certification exam for elementary educators on The Science of Teaching Reading was approved alongside provisions for statewide teacher training to improve K-3 reading instruction. This poster presentation explores pedagogical considerations and inquiry for innovation in the preparation of elementary educators in the Science of Reading in university-based programs including focus on course design, sequence, content, resources, application, and developing school partnerships.

RAN and Screening for Present and Later Reading Difficulties

What Teachers Know About Dyslexia

This presentation presents multiple studies in which Acadience RAN is examined with regards to the prediction of both concurrent and later reading outcomes and difficulties. The first study examines validity of RAN in predicting concurrent and later reading composite scores. Incremental validity examines the unique contribution of RAN when predicting later reading scores, controlling for concurrent performance on both Letter Naming Fluency and the Acadience Reading Composite Score. The second study examines the hypothesis that faster RAN is predictive insofar as it reflects greater phonemic awareness. To test this hypothesis, a mediation analysis was done in which Phoneme Segmentation mediated the relationship between RAN and later reading scores. The results across both studies indicate RAN is highly predictive of later reading performance and difficulty, and is not adequately explained merely by Letter Naming and Phoneme Segmentation.

This session presents over a decade’s worth of research regarding teachers’ knowledge of dyslexia. We explore common misconceptions, referred to as neuromyths, that teachers hold and the implications of these misconceptions. Using survey data and tests of teacher knowledge, we present trends in growth of teacher knowledge, as well as discuss new research examining ways to improve stakeholders’ theoretical and practical understandings of dyslexia. Finally, we recommend content and experiences in teacher education relevant to the IDA Knowledge and Practice Standards for Teachers of Reading.

The Response of English Language Learners to English Language Dyslexia Intervention

Teacher Implementation of Oregon’s dyslexia policy

In U.S. public schools, 10.4% of students are identified as English Language Learners (ELL); though some will be identified with dyslexia (ELL-D). Many schools are only equipped to provide dyslexia intervention services in English. Little is known about whether and how ELL-D’s respond to English Language Dyslexia Intervention (ELDI) in comparison to their English-proficient peers (D-1). This study addresses that question. Findings suggest that both groups benefit equally from ELDI, with additional benefit for ELLs in developing phonological awareness.

This presentation examines implementation of Oregon’s dyslexia policy in one Oregon school district using a critical policy analysis framework. Specifically, this study examines the similarities and differences between implementation of dyslexia policy in dual language and monolingual elementary schools with a focus on screening and intervention processes.

Middle School Pandemic Reading Gains Using Readable English Across the Curriculum

Detect and Correct: Using Technology in Identifying and Correcting Oral Reading Errors

Stopping and reversing learning loss from educational disruptions due to the pandemic is foremost on educators’ minds. Students with reading difficulties like dyslexia have been particularly impacted since they must read to learn core curriculum. This study (N = 344) of sixth, seventh, and eighth graders with reading deficits examined reading progress across the 2020-21 school year. Grade level control groups received standard reading language arts instruction, while intervention groups received additional reading instruction using Readable English. Students in the Readable English condition grew nearly two grade levels in comprehension and seven months in fluency compared to minimal or no growth in the control group. Readable English made reading English easier.

This session will review a pilot research study using Content Acquisition Podcast, CAP, to train graduate level students in a teacher preparation program to identify oral reading errors for beginning readings and those experiencing difficulty with decoding. CAP instruction focused on closed syllable knowledge and a 3 step teaching process to correct students when errors were made. Results indicate the need for explicit, repetitive, and applied practice in learning declarative knowledge such as identifying a closed syllable word. Participants increased their applied knowledge in correcting reading errors through a 3-step process involving timeliness, sound-symbol focus, and student engagement. Additions to the field include relevance of increased instruction and practice in declarative and procedural knowledge in TPPs when previous programming has not addressed structured literacy. The CAP module has implication for parent and support staff training.

But...What Do All These Words Mean?!

Structured Literacy for ALL: How one Charter Network is Doing it Well

Vocabulary is not for “later” after students know how to decode. Join us as we explore how to incorporate the key practice of front loading vocabulary meaning as part of your structured literacy instruction, even for the youngest students. You will learn about cutting-edge instruction approaches that quickly convey deep meaning. You will explore how to select “just right” words that align with curriculum content and/or your decoding goals. You will leave with a step-by-step guide for effectively frontloading the “right” vocabulary that many students require in order to comprehend direct instruction and texts in content areas.

Overcoming Dyslexia : What We Know from Science

JAC K FLE T C HER

Dark secrets in a highly rated school district: In this lively panel presentation, we share about failing students using a balanced literacy approach for instruction and assessment at Tier 1. Tens of thousands of students with and without dyslexia have skated through the system without receiving the structured literacy instruction needed; one deemed by research and mandated by federal and state legislation. Join us to learn how “just a couple of moms”, a few local board members, state elected education off icials and a professor of undergraduate and graduate courses in literacy education locked arms to prove that all K-2 students should receive structured literacy education that is evidence-based and aligned with the science of reading. Participants can immediately apply this approach to elicit systemic change in their district to spur change in their schools! THURSDAY, 1:10 PM – 3:00 PM CT

There are many misunderstandings of scientif ic research on dyslexia. This presentation will provide a scientif ic perspective on dyslexia, including def inition, comorbidity, screening, and assessment. Dyslexia is best treated in the context of MTSS f rameworks that prevent reading problems through early identif ication and explicit, comprehensive and differentiated core and supplemental interventions. Dyslexia is brain-based, but the neural systems are malleable. Intractability to instruction makes dyslexia unexpected, not a cognitive discrepancy. THURSDAY, 3:15 PM – 4:30 PM CT

Advancements in the early prediction and identification of risk for dyslexia

FL OR IN A ER B EL I , P R I YA N K A PAT E L , Z H I C H AO X I A , H UG H C AT T S , & DAV ID FR A N CIS Dyslexia is a multifaceted, complex developmental disorder. Support for this belief is provided by the fact that multiple risk factors appear to be involved. If dyslexia is complex and multifaceted, statistical approaches that primarily focus on a single criterion are likely to result in weak and inaccurate identif ication and prediction of individuals who have or who are at risk of having dyslexia. More accurate identif ication of individuals with dyslexia will require combining multiple sources of information, potentially f rom different levels of analysis including test scores, measuring response to interventions, the presence of common co-occurring conditions, family risk, and neuroimaging. However, how best to combine multiple sources of information remains to be determined. The focus of the proposed symposium is applying models derived f rom machine learning, Bayesian inference approaches, neuroimaging, and other approaches to improve identif ication and prediction of dyslexia.

This presentation will share the results of a current study of participants’ writing progress in response to Tier 3 intervention that integrated topical vocabulary, sentence formulation, and discourse level strategies. Implications for intervention and future research will be outlined and concrete strategies teachers can employ in their classes will be described.

Call to Action! Developing Foundational Literacy Skills in Older Students

D E AR DR A ( D EE ) R O S EN B ER G

D EJUN N E ' JAC K S O N What we know is that oftentimes schools, teachers, and parents have the unfortunate experience of having a f rontrow seat to the reading struggles of students; however, the experiences of those individuals may vary. If examined in isolation, we are likely to miss key opportunities for creating a collective understanding – hearing and assembling these experiences to see the larger picture. Each stakeholder plays a vital role in the discovery, identif ication, and intervention stages of literacy development. Parent advocacy is critical and schools can curate a relationship that ensures a collaborative partnership where the best decisions for providing evidencebased reading instruction are made for all students.

Students with comorbid attention def icit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and specif ic learning disorder in reading (SLD-R) require reading comprehension instruction that is mindful of executive function def icit. Grounded in the notion that remediation is most successful when it is based on an understanding of the possible sources of failure, this presentation examines the interplay between executive function and reading comprehension and explores how reading comprehension instruction might integrate executive function support for students with ADHD and SLD-R. This proposed instructional f ramework integrates executive functions into the reading comprehension process. A lack of consensus with regards to how executive functions are identif ied, def ined, and measured indicates avenues for future research. These f indings are hoped to provide insight to teachers, administrators, curriculum developers, and those who provide teacher professional development.

Background Knowledge: The Bridge Between Decoding and Comprehension

I

ASHA

.1

Background knowledge is most often associated with its role in reading comprehension. Typically, less attention is devoted to its contribution to learning the code. In fact, the breadth of vocabulary knowledge—a proxy for background knowledge— contributes to fluent word recognition, as well. Critical to this dual impact of background knowledge is its concurrent—not sequential—role in decoding and comprehension during beginning reading development. The notion that children learn to read and then read to learn can negatively skew reading instruction. This session examines background knowledge as a bridge between decoding and comprehension, provides instructional recommendations, and demonstrates a free resource.

There are more than 5 million English learners attending public schools in the United States. Close to 80% of these students speak Spanish in the home. Yet, less than 3% of teachers have a specialization in delivery of services to this population of students. IDA’s mission is to ensure evidence-based literacy instruction for all students. In fact, IDA proposed the term Structured Literacy to describe a comprehensive approach to literacy. This instruction is based upon decades of research. Structured Literacy has also been described as an evidence-based approach for English leaners. The National Literacy Panel Report for LanguageMinority Children and Youth describes the 5 components of literacy and the adjustments that are necessary for literacy instruction to this diverse population. This session will describe the current research to support Structured Literacy among English learners. Participants will learn the role of language prof iciency for the development of f irst and second language literacy. The majority of English learners receive English-medium instruction. Therefore, it is important to learn how to deliver instruction utilizing cross-language techniques and therefore utilize an assets-based approach. In this session you will learn the specif ic cross-linguistic features of English and languages such as Spanish, Arabic and Vietnamese. Routines which incorporate language and literacy will be modeled and practiced. Case studies for lesson design will also be presented and a systematic approach will be practiced.

Spelling is a vital link in literacy instruction. Solid instruction in the patterns of the English language, including a deep understanding of the morphemic structure of words, is lacking in most teacher preparation courses and in general education classrooms. Morphology is important for vocabulary development as well as for spelling more complex words. Current research supports the importance of morphological awareness in strong spelling instruction and improved reading skills. This interactive presentation includes activities to reveal morphemic structures that lead to reliable spelling patterns in the English language.

Beyond the Code: Social and Emotional Responses in Children with Dyslexia

L E SL IE EG E T, J OA N MEL E -M C C AR T H Y The f rustrating nature of having a learning difference, like dyslexia, can lead to feelings of anger, anxiety, low selfesteem and depression. While most children with dyslexia do not have emotional disorders, their inability to succeed can take a toll on their social and emotional wellness. Research has focused on the emotional problems that stem f rom the challenges of being an individual with dyslexia. New research suggests that these children have increased physiological and behavioral responses to emotionally evocative stimuli compared to their non-dyslexic peers. Responses were correlated with stronger connectivity in the brain’s system that supports emotion generation and self-awareness. Growing evidence suggests that they may have heightened social and emotional intelligence and that dyslexia may be more complex than being unable to crack the code. These f indings have implications for educating children by highlighting both strengths and weaknesses.

ADHD and Dyslexia: One, the other, or both?

C HE RYL C H A S E Attention-Def icit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Dyslexia are separate conditions which often occur together in the same person. In fact, it is estimated that about 50-60% of people with ADHD will also have a learning disorder, the most common of which is Dyslexia. ADHD is characterized by inattention, distractibility, hyperactivity and impulsivity. Dyslexia is a language-based learning disability characterized by diff iculties with accurate and fluent word recognition, spelling, and reading decoding. Although the two share some traits, they are distinctly different. Proper assessment to identify both conditions is critical. This program discusses both diagnoses, symptoms they have in common, and ways in which they differ. The talk concludes with treatment considerations if both conditions are present.

CONTINUUM OF DECODING STRATEGIES > EXPLICIT—SYSTEMATIC—CUMULATIVE

N AN C Y W H I T E Use of systematic decoding strategies is a reliable path toward accurate identif ication of the vast variety of English words—simplest to most complex. While the alphabetic principle is a foundation of English orthography, learning to read and write is a process of increasing awareness and integration of phonology, orthography, and morphology. Written language requires orthographic memory for patterns: letters, graphemes, syllables, and morphemes. Students can use the considerable benef its of these systems of language structure only when they know the components and understand their interrelationships— including morphophonemics. The session provides modeling and guided practice of a continuum of explicit systematic cumulative decoding strategies.
