Supporting Every Child’s Right to Read

Dr. Nathanial Swain: In My Classroom

Dr. Nathanial Swain joins Dr. Kathryn Garforth to show others how he teaches using practices aligned with the Structured Literacy in his classroom.

Dr. Kathryn Garforth, Ph.D.
Founder of Garforth Education and The Right To Read Initiative. 
Garforth Education provides online courses and professional development for educators. Garforth Education provides support to families of neurodiverse individuals. Dr. Garforth helps them understand the diagnosis and needs of their child.


Dr. Kathryn Garforth is passionate about every child's #RightToRead. As a dyslexic and the parent of a dyslexic she has a personal connection to the struggles students face. Her teacher training program did not provide the training to teach children like her how to read.  She's determined to spread awareness about best practices for teaching reading.

I am a Teacher, Instructional Coach, Researcher and Writer. I am passionate about language, literacy and learning, and effective and engaging teaching for all students.

I teach a class of first year foundation students, in a space affectionately known as Dr Swain’s Cognitorium in a Government Primary School in Melbourne, Australia. I also work as Science of Learning Specialist in my school.

In 2019, I founded a community of teachers and other educators committed to the Science of Learning: THINK FORWARD EDUCATORS.
