This was a fabulous conversation! As an early educator and a mom of a recently diagnosed dyslexic, I applaud your mission to spread the message of structured literacy and the evidence-based research! The science of reading needs to be widely used in schools and it's not. Our children are suffering because of it and I agree that it's because well-meaning teachers simply don't have the training. Thank you, thank you for sharing this crucial message! IG
