23rd Annual Emma Eccles Jones Early Childhood Symposium

Evidence-Based Instruction for Children with or At-Risk for Reading Difficulties in Grade K-3

This session will focus on how children learn to read words and why some children struggle. Understanding the nature of word-level reading development and word-level reading problems will guide both instruction and intervention. Studies consistently show that the most commonly used intervention approaches provide limited benets for weak readers. However, other studies have shown that some approaches can yield very large reading gains for such students, and these will be the focus of the presentation.
