Davenport Community Schools Participates in Conference to Learn About the Latest Information in Brain Research and Reading
Date:1/13/2009

DAVENPORT, Iowa, Jan. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Late last Fall, a team of teachers, paraprofessionals and administrators from Davenport Community School District (DCSD) joined educators from across the country to learn about the latest in brain research and reading, and gain new strategies to successfully implement the Scientific Learning Fast ForWord(R) and Reading Assistant(TM) family of products in their schools. Presented by Scientific Learning Corp., the 2008 National Circle of Learning conference was held Nov. 13-14 in San Antonio, Texas.

The Fast ForWord and Reading Assistant products are scientifically-proven reading intervention programs that strengthen brain processing and literacy skills to increase reading proficiency in students of many ages. Based on 30 years of neuroscience and cognitive research, the software unifies proven curriculum with brain fitness exercises that build the cognitive skills required to read and learn effectively.

Davenport Community Schools first implemented the Fast ForWord software in fall 2007 and Reading Assistant in spring 2008 to improve achievement among struggling readers at the elementary and secondary levels. The district now uses Fast ForWord software in eight preschool centers, eight elementary schools, one intermediate school and all district high schools, including one alternative high school. It also applies Reading Assistant in all three high schools. Teachers, parents, and students alike have observed many successes across the board.

During the two-day conference, DCSD participants attended keynote sessions on "Building Better Brains" and "Learning to Read," as well as several targeted learning sessions. These comprehensive, interactive sessions addressed topics such as: strategies for supporting English language learners (ELL), the Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS), hands- on "make and take" interventions,
