CE/CPD Module Description

Name of CE/CPD Module:
Neuropsychology of Writing Disorders: From Assessment to Intervention

CE/CPD Description:
This presentation should be helpful in assisting educators and psychologists to identify specific breakdowns in the writing process. The ability to generate and produce written language requires multiple linguistic skills involving both phonological and orthographical functioning (the elementary components of language), executive functioning skills to organize inner ideas and thoughts, and working memory skills to hold these thoughts in mind long enough for effective motor skills output. Whereas reading begins with visual stimuli in the outside environment and ends with the brain determining meaning from the stimuli, writing begins with an idea and intent to communicate within the brain, and concludes with a psychomotor act that leaves a tangible record.

CE/CPD Goals and Objectives:
This CE/CPD Module is designed to help you:
• Identify some national trends in the study of written language.
• Identify the neural structures required for writing.
• Identify the subtypes of written expression.
• Identify elements of the 90-minute dysgraphia evaluation.
