Thorndike Press supports literacy in and outside of the classroom by publishing books in large print, which can improve children’s reading skills and reading confidence—resulting in life-long benefits of academic achievement and career success.  By reading Thorndike Press large print titles, with their larger font size and increased white space, students have less difficulty recognizing letters, decoding words, and skipping or repeating lines. When these errors are minimized, fluency increases, leading to better comprehension. With greater comprehension comes greater reading satisfaction; learning to read can then transition to reading to learn.  Come learn about a research based solution that supports students, specifically striving readers, become confident and engaged readers.
