THE PARENT SESSIONS
Season 1

Traditional Library

The Parent Sessions are being led by a powerful, educated and influential group of women who were involved in the Reading First initiative in the state of California, after the National Reading Panel.  In these sessions, parents will be given information they need to know in order to help educate their own children via the science of reading.  If you are a parent, and even if you are an educator who would like to learn more, this will be an amazing opportunity to dive into the science of reading instruction.
