DENTON — Dr. Anne Simpson, professor of reading and director of the Texas Woman’s University Reading Recovery Center, recently was elected vice president of the Reading Recovery® North American Trainers Group.

Reading Recovery® is an early-intervention program for first-graders who are at risk of failure in learning to read. The Reading Recovery® North American Trainers Group (NATG) works to solve issues of implementing the Reading Recovery® program throughout the United States and Canada, to support research and development and to improve teacher leader and teacher training.

“The work of the North American Trainers Group has an international impact on early literacy and early intervention,” Dr. Simpson said. “It is a wonderful honor to have the opportunity to work with this distinguished group of scholars.”

TWU is one of only 22 Reading Recovery® university training centers in the United States and one of only two universities in the country providing training for Descubriendo La Lectura, the Spanish language version of Reading Recovery®.
