The Intersection of Teacher Preparation, the Science of Reading, and Dyslexia
Dr. Jennifer Lindstrom
Associate Professor of Special Education, University of Georgia
This presentation identifies some of the challenges in preparing teachers in the science of reading, including misguided priorities in teacher education, limited knowledge of the science of reading among many teacher educators, and a lack of understanding of the difference between reading difficulties due to poor instruction versus those caused by dyslexia. It concludes with some possible ways to build a culture of literacy, including the importance of buy-in from state and local education agencies, and navigating divergent views among teacher educators on how reading should be taught.
