Response to intervention (RTI) is a phrase that has captivated a national movement, redefined educational policy, and, most importantly, has called for public schools to make a renewed commitment toward using scientifically based instructional techniques as the foundation for sound educational practice. Cognitive neuropsychology has also emerged as a leading discipline in forging the inevitable alliance between science and education. This book represents the natural symbiosis between RTI and the brain–behavioral principles of cognitive neuropsychology to assist all educators in better diagnosing and remediating reading disorders in children.

  • Cognitive Neuropsycology and Five Dirty Words

  • The Phonological Processor
