“Thanks again for a truly informative workshop. I’m always looking to learn something new, and after today, my reading toolkit has been expanded. Especially helpful was the section on retrieval, both from a personal and professional stance. You mentioned some activities that may help my four-year-old with her struggle to name objects quickly, especially as she tells a story or relays parts of her day. Thanks again for such a well-thought-out session. I’d love to see you again in the spring. ”

Literacy Coach, Winchester Public School

“I was fortunate to be able to attend your 2 day workshop on 'The Literate Brain'. Your thorough background information regarding the history of reading and the reading process in the brain was fascinating. The screens that you suggested at each "level" of the reading process will truly help us screen children appropriately, at an early age, in order to inform instruction. This will change our practice from reactive to proactive. I am looking forward to sharing these essential pieces with the administration as well as my Special Education team. Thank you so much for an amazing 2 days of learning!”
