This workshop will begin with a review of the research on the relations between processing speed and cognitive abilities, achievement, and academic performance. A new approach for assessing processing speed that places more emphasis on measuring complex cognitive processing speed will be proposed, along with data from preliminary findings. The workshop will conclude with a review of interventions for processing speed weaknesses.
