Welcome! The Connecticut Reading Association is an organization of literacy professionals throughout Connecticut. Membership is open to all classroom teachers, reading specialists, administrators, paraprofessionals, college and university students, and anyone interested in promoting literacy.
We are the local affiliate of the International Literacy Association. Our mission is to promote literacy for all by improving the quality of reading instruction through the study of current reading research methods and practices; to support and promote the local councils in their goals to promote literacy; to serve as a clearinghouse in disseminating reading information through conferences, newsletters, and speakers; and to encourage reading as a lifetime tool for success.
We provide professional development opportunities throughout Connecticut. Our regional councils, along with our special interest council CARR (Connecticut Association for Reading Research), promote outreach activities to local schools and other non-profits to help foster literacy for all ages.
