Nora Chahbazi is the founder of Evidence-Based Literacy Instruction (EBLI).

Previously a Neonatal ICU nurse, she began researching reading in 1997 to learn how to teach her daughter, who at the time was a struggling reader. This led to the opening of Ounce of Prevention Reading Center in 1999 and the creation of EBLI in 2003.

Nora is the author of a bi-weekly blog and host of monthly webinars that aim to educate the public about the most current, effective, and efficient literacy research and instructional practices. She is the primary consultant to the documentary team for The Truth About Reading literacy documentary currently under production by 22 Emmy award winning documentary director Nick Nanton and DNA Films.

Nora has presented at many education conferences and has been interviewed by several exceptional individuals including Maya Angelou, Jack Canfield, and Emily Hanford.

Passionate about providing a bridge from the research on reading, writing, and spelling to effective, efficient instructional practices that can be used in the classroom and remediation settings, Nora’s ultimate mission is to teach the world to read.
