Since 1970, the Institute of Reading Development has taught more than three million students and trained more than ten thousand teachers.

Colleges, universities, and other non-profit organizations nationwide contract with us to provide reading programs in their communities.

Our curriculum and teacher training programs have been developed by the Institute's founder, Paul Copperman. Mr. Copperman is the author of two influential books on education. In 1982, the United States Senate confirmed Mr. Copperman's Presidential appointment to the National Council on Educational Research.
