Dyslexia and Deficient Cognitive Functions: Using FIE to Support Reading Remediation
Join Rachel Herman, M.A., PCET, Founder and Executive Director of Learning for All for this internationally broadcast webinar with the Feuerstein Institute, Jerusalem as she explores the connection between cognitive functioning using Reuven Feuerstein's theory and dyslexia. Learn how you can use cognitive skill development programs, such as Feuerstein Instrumental Enrichment, to support struggling readers. Italian translation available.
This thought-provoking webinar asks educators to reflect on how their own implicit biases might be contributing to the gap in reading achievement. When educators rely on assumptions and observations without objective data, they risk underestimating some learners and under supporting others. We explore how objective cognitive screening can be used in elementary school to ensure all students receive the right levels of support and enrichment for fluent reading.
