Parent and Educator Workshops

The UURC offers workshops, in partnership with other providers, to provide additional resources to assist parents and educators in helping struggling readers.

Reading Horizons Workshops

For educators and parents interested in developing more effective school and tutorial phonics instruction, the UURC collaborates with HEC Reading Horizons to offer a specialized series of workshops.

These workshops, titled Reading Horizons Discovery®, focus on the syllable structure of the English language and how this knowledge can help struggling readers become more successful at identifying and spelling words.

For more information, visit the Reading Horizons registration page.
