@ehanford is not a scientist. She has co-opted the term "science of reading" for her lucrative ideological stance & she is gas-lighting teachers This has happened before. "Beginning to Read & the Spin Doctors of Science" shreds her arguments @plthomasEdD
My comment: I believe she, Emily, can’t think well. After explaining in detail as to why many smart kids are unable to read she missed the point completely.
Look at all the responses on her email to me and see that she does not even know how or what to question when someone is feeding her valuable information.

Learning styles, learning to read by just reading, and every child learning differently appeal to our intuitions about these things. But in all these cases, our intuitions are wrong.

To put it mildly, I am disappointed with the attitude of Emily Hanford which leaves much to be desired.
