The Winston School Lecture Series 

Please join us for a lecture, Overcoming Reading Failure: Looking Forward on the Wings of Research, by Dr. G. Reid Lyon.


Prior to his academic appointments at SMU and the Center for Brain Health (UTD), Dr. Lyon served as a research psychologist and the Chief of the Child Development and Behavior Branch within the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development at the National Institutes of Health from 2001 to 2005. He was responsible for the direction, development and management of research programs in developmental and cognitive neuroscience, developmental psychology, behavioral pediatrics, reading development and disabilities, learning disabilities, early childhood development, and school readiness. In 2006, Dr. Lyon was named one of the ten most influential people in American education during the last decade by the Editorial Projects in Education Research Center for his work in ensuring that scientific research occupies a central role in educational practices and policy. As well as his appointments to SMU and UTD, Dr. Lyon currently serves as the Co-Editor in Chief of the Annals of Dyslexia. 

Dr. Lyon has appeared on NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, and National Public Radio to discuss issues relevant to education, child development, and educational research and policies.

This lecture is for parents, educators, grandparents, or anyone else interested in learning how to help our struggling readers.  Dr. Lyon will have a question and answer session following the lecture so please reserve your spot today!
