Reading in the Rockies is for Professionals, and Parents!

Reading in the Rockies aims to provide a time and place for teachers, administrators, parents, and other professionals to learn, collaborate, and relax in a beautiful environment. Our speakers address relevant, essential and distinctive topics to build your capacity to support student success, improve your teaching skills, expand your thinking and continue to cultivate your knowledge with practical application strategies. This year is no exception, and we’re looking forward to seeing you all in Copper!

IDA-RMB’s mission is to deepen your professional development with explicit instructional strategies to increase your students’ academic success in both reading and writing. Our content will be relevant for your students, conducted by professionals with classroom experience, and can be used right away.

What people have said about previous Reading in the Rockies Conferences…

“Thanks-It was great! I rarely give ‘5’ ratings. I wish more parents and educators could have been here.”
“Excellent presenters – got so many helpful ideas – worth giving up a Saturday.”


The 2023 Call for Papers Closes May 30th!

Do you want to present at the renowned IDA-RMB Reading in the Rockies conference? We are looking for relevant and practical presentations based in the Science of Reading that address the needs of students with dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADHD, executive functioning and/or social-emotional learning. Presentations should highlight techniques such as Structured Literacy, multisensory instruction (literacy / math), executive functioning strategies, assessment, identification and/or educational leadership implementation. Preference will be given to presentations that provide explicit instructional strategies that can be readily implemented by attendees. Speakers will be compensated with conference registration, but will be responsible for their own lodging, transportation, and other costs outside of the conference.
