For some children, learning to read is as natural as breathing. For other children, reading is a magical mystery tour. For these often bright and articulate children, scientifically-based reading instruction makes a difference. Listen to students go from poor readers to confident readers and from discouraged to enthusiastic readers. Learn the do’s and don’ts of helping students who understand what is read to them but have difficulty reading on their own.

As an educational consultant, Sprick has provided training in literacy and academic supports for thousands of educators throughout the United States. As a former teacher, she is well respected for her ability to inspire educators and translate research into practice. As a literacy expert, she is the lead author of Read Well K-2 (an early reading program), The Third Quest (a reading intervention for adolescent readers), and The Parallel Universe (a tutorial in field testing). Sprick also is the author of “Pre-intervention 2: Assessing and Adjusting Academic Support” in Early-Stage Interventions.
