OVB Fall Conference

Saturday,  October 5, 2013

Topic:  Reading Between, Among and Beyond the Lines

Students may experience difficulties with reading comprehension because of inadequate oral language and vocabulary, insufficient world knowledge, inability to integrate information, poor working memory, lack of sensitivity to causal structures, or inability to identify semantic relationships. This workshop will present evidence-based strategies and activities that help readers increase their vocabulary and metacognitive skills and read with deep comprehension. The importance of text complexity will also be presented.

Presenter: Suzanne Carreker

A past president of The Houston Branch of the International Dyslexia Association (IDA) and current vice president of the national IDA board, Dr. Carreker is a frequent speaker at national and international conferences and has authored numerous journal articles, textbook chapters, and systematic literacy curricula.
