In this talk, I will cover a wide range of topics related to the science of dyslexia. I will discuss the latest research on the importance of early identification for preventing negative downstream effects of dyslexia and poor reading. I will also discuss protective factors, including key resilience and compensatory skills — linguistic, cognitive and social-emotional — that may help optimize outcomes in those with dyslexia and others who read poorly.
