Dr. Michael Hart
Michael Hart, Ph.D. is a psychologist and subject matter expert with almost 30 years of experience in the diagnostic assessment and treatment of a full range of learning differences, including dyslexia and (AD/HD). He is now a national and international speaker, writer and consultant.
Michael also recently served as an international consultant to the UNESCO MGIEP* advisory committee for a large-scale educational technology and literacy development project in India. For the last several years, Dr. Hart has learned much about the immense need for teacher training and support in India regarding dyslexia and other learning differences. And now, through his True Literacy platform (www.trueliteracy.in), Michael is prepared to provide both live and online training solutions.
In addition to his own work, Dr. Hart is partnering with the very best trainers and educators from across the world to provide world class education about effective treatment strategies for a broad range of learning differences.
Dr. Hart also serves as a subject matter expert and frequent speaker for Understood.org, one of the largest repositories of information about learning disabilities in the world.
Michael’s life passion today is to educate the world about the disconnect between the science of teaching reading and what is actually happening in our schools. The issue has always been that the discoveries in reading science and the acquisition of language haven’t been transferred into teacher education. But that is changing. We have the worldwide momentum to finally “bridge the gap” between forty years of reading science and how we train our educators to teach our kids to read.
