The Neuropsychology of Reading and Writing Disabilities: Case Study Analysis

 Presented by Rebecca Resnik, Psy.D.

Workshop Level: Intermediate Level (given that psychological test materials will be shown and discussed, attendees must be appropriately qualified assessment professionals)

For this presentation, Dr. Rebecca Resnik will connect research on the neuropsychology of language-based learning disabilities to the real world of assessment. This presentation is focused on helping psychologists apply neuroscience to create evidence-based assessment batteries and interpret patterns of test behavior. Through anonymized case material, attendees will do “deep dives” into differential diagnosis, prognosis and evidence-based interventions. This presentation will offer attendees opportunities for hands-on work with case material and group discussion. Dr. Resnik will also focus on thorny “real world” testing issues, such as common ethical quandaries and writing for education professionals.

Objectives:

  1. Attendees will be able to describe the neuropsychology of dyslexia, dysgraphia and other language-based learning disabilities
  2. Attendees will apply these research findings to case material to practice developing test batteries
  3. Attendees will apply these research findings to examining test data to inform differential diagnosis
  4. Attendees will apply research findings to practice selecting intervention ‘action plans’ based upon case data
  5. Attendees will be able to describe composing recommendations that are useful to education professionals
  6. Attendees will apply ethical principals to common ethics questions related to assessment
