In the U.S. and around the world, students are not getting the reading instruction they need, when they need it, for complex but preventable reasons.

ECHO Reading is driven by the needs of educators like YOU!

Your Pressing Questions • Our Specialists • In Real Time

Each session, spend a full hour analyzing real cases from your classroom and receiving practical solutions from a network of peers and experts in the field – at no cost to you!

Moving Knowledge, Sharing Resources

Be a part of a learning loop:

  • Educators learn from specialists.
  • Educators learn from each other.
  • Specialists learn from educators in the field to inform future research.
  • Specialists share evidence-based practices with educators.
