The APPLE Group
The APPLE Group was started in 1997, by parents and teachers whose dyslexic children were very bright but struggled in school. It was important to the group to reach these kids and to change reading instruction in our schools. The group offers training and support to parents and teachers: bringing in trainers to teach the science of reading; offering tutoring; helping universities design programs that teach the Knowledge and Practice Standards for effective reading instruction; and helping pass dyslexia and science of reading laws. The APPLE Group has trained hundreds of educators and parents in structured language, specifically CONNECTIONS, at the interventionist and therapist level.
