FREE WEBINARS

New Free Webinar - Building a Reading Brain - Weds., 4/17, 11 AM PT

New Free Webinar - Building a Reading Brain

Reading is not hard-wired in our brains. Everyone who learns to read has to build the mental pathways that enable reading to happen. Join Betsy Hill, neuro-educator and President of BrainWare Learning Company for a webinar exploring the what is often considered “the basics” of reading – decoding and fluency and comprehension – as well as “the even more basic basics”– the cognitive processes that support reading. Finally, we discuss the stages of learning to read and how to support emerging readers.
