Getting off the Curriculum Carousel! Rethinking the Reasons Your Child is Underperforming in Reading

In this workshop, cognitive psychologist Dr. Amy Moore will share how weaknesses in your instruction or reading curriculum may not be the root cause of your child’s poor reading performance. Instead, Dr. Amy will share how cognitive skills underlie the ability to think and learn effectively and that strengthening cognitive skills may be a better choice than changing curriculum…again. Expertly weaving science with stories of hope and a fun brain training demonstration, Dr. Amy will ensure attendees will leave with a better understanding of what to look for in reading instruction and how brain strengthening exercises can improve reading skills.
