So helpful!

Hi ladies - I just caught up on season two. I missed you all summer. I find your podcast to be my favorite and I’m always wanting more. As a third grade teacher it can be overwhelming to navigate the needs of my students. Thanks for all your great ideas.

Parent here

I am the parent of a newly diagnosed dyslexic student who had struggled for the first 2 years of school. I have found this podcast priceless - I have listened voraciously to each episode (even playing some more than once so that I can take notes). I am so thankful for those who have education and experience in this area to help those of us who don’t (yet - this subject has ignited me so thoroughly that I’m returning to college for education in this area).

Thank you for your hard work and sharing your time with us!

Love

I've had 7 years of experience in teaching students with dyslexia and have just entered my 3rd year of teaching general education. I feel so fortunate to have had early exposure to systematic, direct instruction strategies. I have a masters in Special Education mild moderate, yet never learned how to teach reading in my program. Everything I learned was through professional development, coaching, and experience at a school for students with language-based learning differences. Teacher prep programs need to teach these basic concepts and strategies. I'm so glad you are discussing these topics on your podcasts for teachers to hear. Two things. 1. I'd love to hear your thoughts on Lucy Caukins and Units of Study. 2. What research have you found on best practices for teaching reading comprehension? Thank you!
