Mapping the future for poor comprehender research: taking stock and moving forward


York, UK
6-7 September 2018

This workshop will bring researchers together to discuss ongoing research into current practices in assessment, identification and intervention for comprehension difficulties, and to debate the utility of considering poor comprehenders as a distinct group. The first day of the workshop will constitute talks that aim to reconcile previous approaches to poor comprehender research and will consider the assessment and stability of reading comprehension, relevant language interventions, and new methodological approaches. Attendees are also invited to present posters. The second day of the workshop will provide a forum for collaboration. The focus will be on combining existing data to directly address the issues discussed on Day 1. Those wishing to contribute data are invited to stay for the second day. This workshop has been made possible thanks to funding from the Experimental Psychology Society.
