In this presentation, Dr. Catts will present a model of reading comprehension that highlights the language basis of reading development/disorders. Language problems and other factors associated with dyslexia and a specific comprehension deficit
will be discussed, as well as the implications for the early identification and intervention of these reading disabilities.

taught courses in language science and literacy development and disabilities. His research interests include the early identification
and prevention of reading disabilities.
