Description

Reading Intervention and Related Assessment for Children With Significant Cognitive Impairments

Christopher Lemons, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Instruction and Learning, University of Pittsburgh, will present his lecture "Reading Intervention and Related Assessment for Children with Significant Cognitive Impairments" on Thursday, Dec. 13, at 1:30 p.m. in VKC Room 241. Dr. Lemons will present his research addressing reading intervention and assessment for children with significant cognitive impairments. First, a set of single-case design studies will be presented, in which the efficacy of evidence-based early reading interventions were examined for children with Down syndrome. Second, he will describe a study in which early-grade curriculum-based measures (CBM) were administered to 7,440 children with significant cognitive impairments. Associations between CBM performance, disability category, grade-level, and the state alternate assessment (AA-AAS) will be discussed. Dr. Lemons is a candidate for the Intensive Instruction position in the Department of Special Education. For more information, contact LaRashia Grafton at larashia.grafton@vanderbilt.edu.
