This presentation will focus on how children learn to read words and why some children struggle. The goal of the presentation is to establish a knowledge base for educators about the nature and components of word-level reading and the causes of reading disabilities. This knowledge base should assist educators with implementing the most effective instructional and intervention practices.

He has been teaching courses in learning disabilities and educational psychology since 1994 and is the author of several influential books which provide evidence-based strategies for improving reading outcomes for struggling readers. David currently conducts research on reading difficulties and does professional development workshops for educators. Professor David Kilpatrick's work has been influential in shaping literacy instruction practices and providing insights into the nature of reading difficulties, particularly for individuals who struggle with reading.
