Jennifer Baker, a communications disorders assistant professor, is now certified as a structured literacy dyslexia specialist through the Center for Effective Reading Instruction.

“There is a significant need for science-based intervention for struggling readers, especially those with dyslexia,” Baker said. “Every child deserves to learn to read, even when there are obstacles.”

“I’m thankful for this opportunity to expand my knowledge and skills so that we can better serve our clients and ensure that our clinical students leave Marshall with a better understanding of dyslexia and the evidence-based interventions that can help.”

“Professor Baker is a valuable member of our faculty and an excellent resource for families in the Tri-State area,” said Pam Holland, the chair of the Department of Communication Disorders.

Baker was the recipient of “Leading the Way for Literacy: Education and Skill Development for Practicing Speech Language Pathologists,” a grant by the West Virginia Department of Education. She will be offering professional development courses for speech-language pathologists.
