"Bridging the gap between research and practice is critical as we strive to provide every child with effective opportunities to benefit from our instruction. For us to close this formidable fissure between what appears in the scientific literature and the daily practices employed in classrooms, researchers and practitioners need opportunities to come together as equals and exchange knowledge and experiences in a way that promotes improved and efficacious approaches to instruction. The AIM Research Symposium is such an opportunity to do just this."

- Donald L. Compton, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology and Education, Florida Center for Reading Research
