  • Just as a child develops language skills long before being able to speak, the child also develops literacy skills long before being able to read. (National Research Council)
  • Children develop much of their capacity to learn in the first three years of life, when their brains grow to 90% of their eventual adult weight. (1998 Karoly study)
  • 75% of students who are poor readers in the third grade will remain poor readers in high school. (1997 Yale Study)
