Who is this training intended for?
Any educator who wants to deepen their understanding of the reading brain and acquire knowledge and tools to teach reading (regardless of what curriculum you use).
While I invite all educators to attend, I want to be clear that the content is most applicable for those who teach students in Pre-K through 3rd grade. Why? Because it’s during those years the building blocks (foundational skills) of reading are taught (ideally). Do we have students in 5th, 8th and 11th grade reading at a 2nd-grade level? Of course! Will you acquire knowledge and tools to support older struggling students? YES! Still have questions? Give us a call.
