Dr. Kilpatrick's presentation 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 assessment and intervention. Studies consistently show that the most commonly used reading programs provide limited benefits for weak readers. However, other studies demonstrate that some approaches yield substantial gains in reading for such students, and these will be the focus of the presentation.
