This webinar with Dr. Sharon Vaughn is brought to you by TRL-Georgia and IDA-Georgia. The Science of Reading (SOR) has had a significant influence on the public’s knowledge about current reading practices and the changes required to institutionalize change in implementing the SOR in our schools. Much of the SOR has focused on the foundation skills such as phonemic awareness, phonics, and other word reading practices. This is necessary because the challenges of learning to read are largely remedied through improving these foundation skills and using SOR to do so. However, there are other critical instructional practices that are necessary to enhance reading outcomes for students with dyslexia including text-based reading strategies that support building background knowledge and comprehension, vocabulary enhancement, and fluency. This presentation will provide a knowledge base from the research on several elements of improving reading outcomes for students with dyslexia.
