Before starting her doctoral studies, Aviva Segal was an award winning early academic intervention consultant and ran a summer reading program for struggling readers. In 2018, she earned her PhD in Education from Concordia University, where her doctoral research focused on the home literacy environment, with a particular interest in knowledge and practices that contribute to children’s reading and writing development. Dr. Segal has presented her research at numerous international conferences including the Society for the Scientific Study of Reading and Jean Piaget Society. She was recently awarded The Gerald Schwartz and Heather Reisman Postdoctoral Fellowship in Literacy, under the mentorship of Dr. Delphine Collin-Vézina. In this capacity, she intends to extend her research to investigate current models addressing the literacy needs of children who have experienced complex trauma.
