Assessing and Understanding Rapid Automatized Naming (RAN) presented by Elizabeth Norton, Ph.D.


This event is free, but pre-registration is required.  Registration closes on Sunday, April 23rd.  Registrants will receive a link and a passcode the day before the event.  

Fluent reading depends on a complex set of cognitive processes that must work together in perfect concert.  Rapid automatized naming (RAN) tasks provide insight into this system, acting as a microcosm of the processes involved in reading.  An understanding of how and why to assess RAN can support early identification of reading difficulties and serve as a key indicator for treatment planning for students with varying reading abilities. In this presentation, Dr. Norton will share her research on RAN, the characteristics of a RAN task as differentiated from other measures, the theoretical basis and the research evidence for the relationship between RAN and reading, and the ways in which brain data can provide insights into RAN and reading.  Register here:
