Maryanne Wolf, director of the UCLA Center for Dyslexia, Diverse Learners and Social Justice
, and researcher Laura Rhinehart are collaborating with UCLA Lab School faculty to develop a series of reading interventions to support young students’ early literacy. Now in its third year, this three-year longitudinal study began with ECII students and is following the students in Primary.
The Lab School regularly uses assessments to help identify and support students who are at-risk of reading challenges and/or dyslexia in early grades in order to prevent them from falling behind in reading. As a result, students receive targeted interventions to support their development. This research project will be using data from these classroom practices to assess the impacts of various interventions on students.
