Upon completion of this program, you will be able to immediately provide treatment to address your client’s: • Visual perceptual skills • Visual motor integration • Auditory and visual memory • Reading rate, accuracy, fluency, comprehension • Phonetic awareness and memory • Spelling and handwriting struggles Turn everyday activities into successful treatment! Objectives: • Analyze the 3 types of dyslexia and apply compensatory strategies to each specific type, such as recital, chunking, and mnemonics as they apply to visual and auditory memory. • Determine the executive cognitive functions and treatment methodologies that impact processing speed and reading comprehension. • Choose treatment strategies to address visual perceptual, visual motor integration, auditory and visual memory deficits to increase handwriting legibility, reading comprehension, and ability to follow multi-step directions. • Communicate how to integrate electronic and low tech games into treatment activities to increase reading comprehension, ability to follow multi-step directions for increased academic success. • Identify ICD-10 treatment diagnostic codes and CPT billing codes to properly bill for reimbursement. • Establish 3 strategies to improve client’s ability to recall multi-step instructions and letter sequence for spelling.
