Dr. Laura Bailet
For Dr. Laura Bailet, reading is a joy. She shared her love of books with her children and watched them grow into avid readers. At the same time, she worked with many struggling readers and saw their challenges first hand. She received her doctorate in communicative disorders and worked as a licensed school psychologist. In 2005, she founded Nemours BrightStart! – a program to promote reading success and prevent reading failure in children. Her vision for the future helped drive Nemours BrightStart!’s vision statement, “Every child becomes a reader.” In addition to educators, Nemours BrightStart! empowers parents to get involved with tools and tips on www.readingbrightstart.org.
