Literacy Organizations and Affiliations
"Today's specialized literacy professionals must, by necessity, form affiliations with networks of professionals and agencies that support the increased demands of the job. Instead of being able to answer all the questions--an impossible task--the reading specialist and/or literacy coach must know how to locate information and contact individuals with specialized expertise." (Shearer, Carr, & Vogt, 2019).
