Have you ever wondered what happens between the time your eyes look at a word and your brain processes it? What seems easy to some is much more difficult for others. This class is an introduction to what science has revealed about how instruction reshapes the brain to develop the ability to read and the signs of dyslexia to look for when that development does not easily occur. How the Brain Learns to Read will put critical literacy knowledge at your fingertips to inform identification and instructional decisions for vulnerable readers in your classroom or school.
