Reading and Spelling Workshop
27 - 28 September 2017, Macquarie University, Sydney
The workshop, hosted by the ARC Centre of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders in conjunction with the MQ Cognition Clinic for Reading, aims to bring together leading researchers from around the world to discuss reading and spelling development, disorders, remediation, and related policy. The workshop will therefore have two parts, one day focused on practice and policy and one day focused on research. Our intended audience includes teachers, school counsellors, clinicians, parents, and researchers.
September 27 | Research Overview
Presentations by researchers in the field of reading, spelling, dyslexia, and dysgraphia. Learn about current theories of reading and dyslexia from national and international experts.
September 28 | Practice and Policy
Presentations and workshops on clinical and policy topics, including resources for testing, the impacts of working memory and emotional health on dyslexia, and current Australian educational policy and programs.
