In recent years, scientists have made great strides in understanding how children learn to read, as well as how to prevent and correct most reading difficulties. However, the American Federation for Teachers, the Journal of Learning Disabilities, and School Psychology Review have all highlighted the fact that these findings have not become widely known or used in our schools. Equipped for Reading Success is designed to summarize these research results in a clear and easy-to-read manner, bringing teachers up-to-date on these exciting findings.
