What & Why: This preconference session is designed to provide training and information for anyone (at home, schools, or organizations) who wants to successfully tutor a child (age 4-7) in essential reading skills using the best-selling book, Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons (TYC) ­– the adaption for one-on-one instruction of the original, empirically validated beginning reading program used in schools with groups of students. TYC incorporates the Science of Reading with the Science of Teaching since 1983. This book has been endorsed by the Right to Read founder Robert Sweet; New York Times writer John McWhorter; and was the ONLY instructional program recommended for further reading by Emily Hanford (Sold a Story podcast) See: https://startreading.com/research-reviews/.

Session Presenter: Dr. Susan Syverud is a long-time child advocate, TYC trainer, and currently a faculty member at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. She will provide fun, comprehensive training in the techniques and strategies required to successfully implement TYC. Participants will have the opportunity to earn a Certificate of Proficiency. Susan works directly with Dr. Phyllis Haddox, who recently fully revised and updated Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons. Phyllis will appear before and during the session for interactions and personal book signing.
