WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!

We are collecting learning to read literacy stories from around the world!

What do you remember about learning to read? As a parent, what was your experience watching your child learn to read? As a teacher, what was your experience working with children teaching them to read? We are collecting learning to read literacy stories from around the world! Please share your experience with us; we want to hear from YOU!

Your courage, your boldness, your perseverance, and willingness to learn, advocate, or teach reading is inspirational to others!


Examples may include:


  • What was your experience learning to read?
  • What was your experience as a parent helping your child learn to read?
  • What is your experience as a teacher helping your students learn to read?
  • What is your success story?
  • What were your reading challenges?


We will share the most inspiring and heartfelt stories, maybe even yours! 


The world needs to hear the struggles, processes, and successes individuals go through to crack the reading code. 

Share your learning to read literacy struggles and success stories here:

Your story might be the final push that inspires someone else to find the courage to persevere. You could motivate someone to transform education so that all children, regardless of their learning differences, can be taught to read! 


We can’t thank you enough for being willing to contribute. We know that your reading story might impact others from around the world. Thank you for helping us.  You matter, your story matters, and we want to hear from YOU!
