We are currently developing a series of professional workshops that will provide practical step-by-step guidance to clinicians, teachers, and volunteers on how to provide targeted research-based assessments and interventions for persons with reading and spelling difficulties that are easy to understand, and are delivered by experts in the field.
How to make evidence-based decisions
about treatments for poor readers
The goal of this workshop is to equip people with the knowledge and practical skill needed to make evidence-based decisions about reading interventions.
Assessment and treatment approaches for
children with reading and spelling difficulties
Dr Saskia Kohnen will present a one-day workshop on the evidence-based assessment and treatment of reading and spelling difficulties focussing on primary school aged children.
Working memory and reading difficulties
In this two-hour seminar, Dr Banales will discuss the methods of intervention for children with dyslexia, including the role of verbal working memory training in treating reading difficulties. She will also discuss the implications of poor working memory in the classroom and how these difficulties may be supported.
Noise in classrooms
In this one-day workshop, guest presenter Dr Kiri Mealings will discuss how the acoustics of classrooms and open plan innovative learning spaces affect primary school children’s speech perception abilities.

International guest presenter: Professor Rhona Stainthorp (UK)
In this one-day workshop, international guest presenter Rhonda Stainthorp will discuss various topics including ‘the simple view of reading’, reading and spelling words, and assessing children’s reading ability.
