Each year, Lee Pesky Learning Center hosts the Pathways to Learning Event to unite our community of parents, alumni, friends, educators, researchers, businesses, and investors in support of the work we do. This evening is also an opportunity to learn more about the scientific advancements that are being made in the field of learning and attention challenges.

Our annual Pathways to Learning event will be held on Wednesday, April 8, 2020. The event will begin with a reception in the lobby of Holland & Hart law offices, follow, then will transition to the Zions Bank Ballroom. This evening of celebration, learning, and support of LPLC will begin at 5:30 p.m.

Our 2019 event raised over $75,000 to support students, families, and teachers. We hope you will join us to make this year’s event even more of a success! And if not – we hope you will consider making a gift or purchasing a sponsorship to support creating pathways to learning for all.

The Florida Center for Reading Research is a multidisciplinary research center at Florida State University that explores all aspects of reading research — basic research into literacy-related skills for typically developing readers and those who struggle, studies of effective prevention and intervention, and psychometric work on formative assessment.

Dr. Compton’s research examines individual differences in children’s reading development and the identification and treatment of children with reading disabilities. He joined FCRR in 2015, having served as Professor and Chair of Special Education and a John F. Kennedy Center Investigator at Peabody College, Vanderbilt University.

Dr. Compton’s presentation, Dyslexia: The Science, the Media, the Individual, is a unique chance to hear from one of the world’s leading researchers in the field of reading and dyslexia.
