Description

In his keynote presentation for the 2016 UNESCO MGIEP conference on learning differences, Dr. Hart tells the story of why, after compiling at least 40 years of scientific research about reading, two-thirds or US school children are below proficiency in reading by fourth grade. He recounts lessons learned and implores our global partners in India and elsewhere to learn from our mistakes and provide the proper training and resources to our teachers. If you can't read, what does that say about our future?

Objectives

Objectives For This Presentation
1. Learn about the definition of dyslexia and reading problems.
