Article selected for 2014 CLD MUST READS!

Congratulations to CTL’s Nancy Nelson and her CTL co-authors, Hank Fien and Jeanie Smith, whose article was selected as a 2014 CLD MUST READ.

Every year the Council for Learning Disabilities (CLD) selects outstanding work published in CLD's two journals, Learning Disability Quarterly and Intervention in School and Clinic, that promotes research in the field of special education.

CLD is hosting a webinar to allow the authors to share their research! Join Nancy and her colleagues on December 4th at 5:00 CST to hear more about efficacy of Enhance Core Reading Instruction (ECRI) for increasing the intensity and the quality of explicit literacy instruction.
