Research-Based Reading Screening, Assessments, and Intervention Implementation Training

Students’ reading skills are critically important for school and life-long success. For struggling students, reading difficulties compound over time and impact their ability to succeed academically and socially in areas that extend beyond reading. Fortunately, reading difficulties can be identified using meaningful assessments and addressed with targeted, evidence-based reading interventions, thereby changing a student’s trajectory from struggling to striving.
