Teaching the reading brain

11:00 - 12:00

This introduction to reading in the brain will combine cognitive neuroscience research with best educational practice.  Emphasis will be given to the development of phonemic awareness, synthetic phonics instruction and contextual reading.  Two subtypes of dyslexia will also be discussed and implications for developing intervention programmes provided.  Brain diagrams and examples will be used throughout to describe the circuits behind reading acquisition.
