"Translating research into educational practice"
Dansin Associates’ offers both content and process consulting:

In addition, Dansin Associates provides training on research validated programs and supports.
Dansin Associates works to build and sustain school-wide intervention models in reading, believes that research validated commercial curriculum programs in reading should serve as the primary foundation of a school-wide intervention model, uses classroom data to improve student achievement, and supports SYSTEMATIC EXPLICIT INSTRUCTION of basic skills.
Dansin Associates’ philosophy of education is “Educational programming decisions must be made based on student needs.” If the curriculum, no matter how popular, is deficient in serving the needs of the child, student learning will be impeded. In that vein, Dansin Associates will use a “Best Practice,” prescriptive approach to delivering education. Only the best programs, supported by systematic, scientific research will be used, and only used if they meet the specific needs of the individual student.
