Here are some highlights:

  • School-wide strategy sessions for administrators wanting to increase AYP so everyone reads at grade leve.
  • The latest information on multi-tiered reading programs and RTI.
  • Practical sessions to help educational practitioners add tools, strategies and knowledge to their “toolbox” in order to teach reading, wpelling and writing more effectively to struggling readers.
  • The opportunity for parents to learn about what type of reading and spelling instruction their child/young adult needs; to gain a better understanding of the legalities of the IEP process; to learn about the emotional problems related to poor reading and much, much more.

Other speakers are Dr William Howard: “Seven Faulty Notions About Teaching Children to Read,” and Elaine McEwan-Adkins: “Teach Them All to Read.”
