Reading in the Rockies began at Manor Vail over 25 years ago. This conference has gained a reputation for being one of the country’s premier conferences for addressing the needs of at-risk readers and writers. The concept is to provide a time and place for teachers to learn, collaborate, and relax in a beautiful environment. Our topics and our speakers address relevant, essential and distinctive topics to build your capacity to support student success, improve your teaching skills, expand your thinking and continue to cultivate your knowledge with practical application strategies. Each year is no exception!! This is truly a conference worth investing your time and money to attend.

The Reading Interventionist Endorsement begins in Fall 2016 and focuses on Tier II and Tier III interventions. A Level I Reading Endorsement is a prerequisite. Decoding Dyslexia-UT worked alongside the USOE and Kathleen Brown of the University of Utah Reading Clinic to develop this new certification. PC READS was kept in the loop during its development. Wilson Level I Certification fulfills the Tier III Practicum requirement.
