It is 2050, and we are looking back on how we used to teach reading. The Reading Wars are history, and everyone understands and knows how to help all kids learn to read.
The kids who struggle the most are identified in pre-K and provided with interventions that place them on the most effective paths to reading as quickly as possible. Artificial Intelligence and other research-based solutions are woven into education. Teachers become even more important leaders as they navigate their students through lessons taught in ways uniquely tailored to help all and each student succeed.
We don’t have to wait until 2050 to help more kids learn to read. The solutions are easy:
- Support policies that include universal screening for risk of reading issues like dyslexia and teacher training.
- Train all educators about dyslexia and the foundations of literacy.
- Train students in higher education who are studying to be teachers and early childhood professionals before they graduate.
- Empower parents, librarians, and anyone interested in literacy education with the right information to help all kids learn to read.
Dyslexia affects about 15-20 percent of the population and represents about 80 percent of all learning disabilities. Please help us help more of our kids learn to read. Read our stories, follow us on social media, and support our efforts. Teach My Kid to Read is on a mission, and our name says it all. Teach My Kid to Read.
