193. Masterclass: Reading & Executive Functioning w/ Dr. Steve Feifer

Dr. Jeremy Sharp Podcast 3 Comments

Welcome to another Masterclass episode! If you missed the first one with Dr. Stephanie Nelson, definitely check that one out. Today my guest is Dr. Steve Feifer, developer of the Feifer family of academic measures. We’re talking all about reading disorders and executive functioning. The format for today’s Masterclass is a bit different than last time, however. Instead of Dr. Feifer presenting his own case, he is providing “live consultation” on two of my own cases. (Note: any identifying information was removed from the data, and demographic information was changed appropriately). You can find the data that we discuss as a download in the Cool Things Mentioned section.

As always, let me know what you think of the Masterclass format. Hope you enjoy!

      Sorry about that! Looks like it didn’t upload for some reason. It’s right at the top of the list now though.

  1. Hello Jeremy.
    I really appreciate the information shared in this podcast.
    I am a practicing school psychologist.
    We use the Pattern of Strengths and Weaknesses approach for a Specific Learning Disability (SLD). I wish we used the “Process” approach to determining SLD.
    I so agree with the idea of finding out the “Why?”
    Lately, I’ve been saying to myself, “So what the scores are low!” I need to know why they are low and what to recommend for addressing the “why.”
