This timely session will address screening for literacy milestones and reading disabilities, including developmental dyslexia in early grades (pre-K-1st). It will provide the WHY behind the screening movement with a strong focus on the neurobiology of reading development and reading disabilities. It will introduce the 'Dyslexia Paradox' and will further outline the important constructs to screen for with a developmental lens and discuss practical steps for implementing a screening protocol in various educational or clinical settings. The session will conclude with an overview of different screening instruments and criteria for picking the right screener as well as a discussion about the educational and clinical implications of screening young children.
Dr. Nadine Gaab, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Boston Children’s Hospital Boston/Harvard Medical School and a member of the faculty at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Nadine’s work focuses on developmental cognitive neuroscience, particularly in language-based learning disabilities. Her research within the Laboratories of Cognitive Neuroscience examines the development of typical and atypical language and literacy skills in the pediatric brain as well as on pre-markers of learning disabilities and the development of screening tools for screening literacy milestones and reading disabilities such as dyslexia. She is the 2019 recipient of the LDA Award (Learning Disabilities Association America) for her work on learning disabilities. In 2018, Nadine was presented with the Allan C. Crocker Award for her advocacy on behalf of children with dyslexia and reading disabilities and efforts around the recent passage of the Massachusetts screening legislation (under the guidance of Decoding Dyslexia MA). She has also been recognized by the International Dyslexia Association in her receipt of the Norman Geschwind Memorial lecture 2020 and the Alice H. Garside Award for outstanding leadership in advancing the science and advocacy of dyslexia. She is an international speaker, frequently presenting to educators and parents on the brain science of typical and atypical literacy development as well as best screening practices for early literacy milestones, dyslexia and other reading impairments.
