SRSD offers a practical set of strategies with embedded deliberate skill practice. It quickly enables teachers to see growth in both literacy outcomes, and student independence.  Developed by Dr. Karen Harris & colleagues, SRSD is fueled by 35 years of research and innovation. thinkSRSD specializes in making it easy to schools to learn and sustain SRSD.


thinkSRSD’s passion is bringing SRSD to schools through blended learning. We serve schools across the nation and world through our unique eLearning modules and live web calls.
