  • Location: Hobbs Hall • 1818 Horton Ave • Nashville, TN 37212

Educational Neuroscience Speaker Series: How Language Variation Contributes to Reading Difficulties and Achievement Gaps

  Speaker: Mark S. Seidenberg
Vilas Professor and Donald O. Hebb Professor
Department of Psychology
University of Wisconsin - Madison


“Children’s progress in learning to read is affected by characteristics of the child, home, community, and school. Much attention is now focused on variability in the amount and complexity of language used in the home. However, we also need to look closely at linguistic differences between the language used in the home and in school. Dr. Seidenberg will discuss strategies for reducing the risk of reading failure.”
