The brief webinar is the first step on your evidence-based reading instruction (EBRI) journey, providing an introduction and overview of EBRI. It is a prerequisite for all other EBRI offerings. (Note: STAR training also fills this prerequisite, so STAR-trained practitioners do not need to take this Overview.)
