The Language Basis of Reading: Assessment and Instruction for Language Comprehension
PRESENTER: Dr. Tiffany Hogan
The Reading League Headquarters
SALT Space Black Box Theater
103 Wyoming St
Syracuse, NY 13204
PARKING: Free parking is located at the Performance Park parking lot on the corner of Wyoming and Marcellus Streets.
WHEN: Thursday, January 9, 2020 from 5:00 PM – 7:30 PM
DESCRIPTION: This Live Event will address assessment and instruction for stimulating language comprehension. Dr. Tiffany Hogan will review findings from the ‘Reading for Understanding Initiative,’ funded by the US Department of Education Institute of Education Sciences from 2010-2016. This includes a summary of over 200 scientific studies of reading and language comprehension, and evidence for effectiveness of hundreds of free language comprehension lessons for children in preschool through grade 12. Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) is a common learning disability affecting 10% of children or 1-2 in each classroom. It is a “hidden” disability – with only 30% identified for support. This lack of identification means that these children go on to have reading comprehension problems, often as late emerging poor readers who fall through the cracks. Participants will learn about recent advocacy for children with specific language comprehension impairments and those with Developmental Language Disorder, including how to identify and support these children.Attend event

Meet The Reading League
So impressed with the work of The Reading League. I’m not even in the same country and their work reaches and impacts positively … probably around the entire world!
Professional, passionate educators with a shared love of teaching children to read. The best collaboration I have been involved with, using evidenced- based practices that I can immediately implement in my classroom.
