by Michael F. Shaughnessy.
This is an excellent interview conducted by Michael F. Shaughnessy in which he interviews Professor James M. Royer. A professor of phycology at the university of Massachusetts, Professor Royer's research has focused on the developement, validation, and application of the Sentence Verification Technique (SVT) which measures reading and listening comprehension. His work is internationally recognized and applied. In this interview he discusses his research and the domain of reading comprehension and its measurement. A very interesting interview that provides a good read.

Our Dynaread team members are required to hold themselves accountable for serving our clients in adherence with our core values...
Contribute with scientific and overall integrity.
Retain the focus on the needs of each individual child.
Dynaread has been developed in the trenches of actual remediation, with our feet firmly planted on the ground. Scientific research is essential (and we consistently use it), but we also understand the realities at home and in school. Not all homes have two parents, not all Dad's or Mom's are always home, there is oftentimes no money, schools lack staff or funding. We listen, we observe, we discuss, and we build the best solutions we can for older (ages 7+) struggling readers.
