April 6, 2021 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

This webinar will address how the human brain has evolved over time to make sense of words on a page, weaving a tapestry of research from neuroscience, linguistics, and cognitive psychology.

Dr. Maryanne Wolf will delve into dyslexia, what it is, whether we can predict it before a child fails to learn to read, what the role of empathy is, and how we can use our knowledge of the reading brain and dyslexia to teach all readers. Dr. Wolf will also discuss her research on how a digital culture is changing who we are as readers.

Presented by :: Dr. Maryanne Wolf, Director of the Center for Dyslexia, Diverse Learners, and Social Justice, UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies
