Dr. Kathryn Garforth

We’re grateful to have Dr. Kathryn Garforth join us again this year! There are many ways to support reading development without opening a book, and she will take us through how to help exceptional learners to develop the skills needed.

“Did you know that reading is not a natural process? The human brain has not evolved to have one reading center. Every brain has to rewire itself so it can learn to read. Reading Science bases instruction on the 5 Essential Skills that everyone needs to develop in order to become a confident reader. There are many ways we can support these skills at home and in the classroom to give individuals access to what the UN considers a basic human right, reading.”
