Dr. Mahone is a child neuropsychologist and research scientist at the Kennedy Krieger Institute. He is also an Associate Professor in Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. In this seminar, Dr. Mahone will present behavioral and neuroimaging data that address how children learn to read, and factors that interfere with reading fluency and comprehension.
The presentation will focus on studies of children with ADHD who develop late-emerging difficulties with reading and how these findings inform instructional methods for all students.
