Cerebrodiversity and the Science of the Reading Brain: Implications for Dyslexia

Annmarie Urso is an associate professor at the Ella Cline Shear School of Education. She has been continuously involved in education as a student, teacher, or professor since 1967.   Urso earned her doctorate at the University of Arizona in Special Education: Learning Disabilities and Assessment, with a minor in Teacher Preparation for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Learners.  Her research interests include cognitive profiles of students with dyslexia and effective interventions for students with the most difficult to remediate reading and writing difficulties.

The mission of SUNY Geneseo is to combine a rigorous curriculum and a rich co-curricular life in order to create a learning-centered environment. It is this marriage of academics and campus life that has propelled Geneseo to be a nationally-recognized public liberal arts college.

The All-College Hour Speaker Series supports the College mission and embodies the principles of The Bringing Theory to Practice Project. The aim of the series is to provide integrative opportunities for the campus community to come together to engage in learning that promotes cognitive, emotional, and civic development. The topics of the series are intended to challenge thinking, spur self-reflection, encourage civil discourse, and promote social responsibility. The series is sponsored by Student and Campus Life. All sessions take place during the All-College Hour (2:30-3:45 PM).
