Every month, Learning Ally features one of our amazing Reading Champions - highlighting their efforts in supporting students who have a reading-based learning difference such as dyslexia. This month, we caught up with the Director of the Cooper Learning Center and author, Dr. Richard Selznick, who has referred over 300 students to use Learning Ally's Audiobook Solution, enabling them to read independently, access grade-level content, and learn to their ability.
Watch the video below to gain insight into why Dr. Selznick participates in the Reading Champion program!
