This course describes causes, characteristics, and instruction for processing disorders. The role of the brain in reading and processing information and the evaluation of mental/perceptual/academic abilities is discussed. The learning process of children with and without perceptual problems is compared. Identification and characteristics of dyslexia, ADHD, and other perceptual disorders are also explored. Common patterns of strengths and weaknesses in dyslexia and related disorders are presented to explain how the process of reading is fundamentally different for children with and without learning differences.
