Empower™ Reading was developed by Dr. Maureen W. Lovett and her team of educators and psychology professionals in the Learning Disabilities Research Program (LDRP) at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids).
Empower™ Reading is the culmination of 30 years of research that rigorously evaluated what constitutes effective programming for students with significant reading difficulties. Empower™ Reading consists of four modules and transforms children and adolescents with significant reading and spelling difficulties into strategic, independent, and flexible learners.
