The Reading Clinic provides services for children and adolescents who have learning difficulties, are lagging behind their peers in reading, or who are not motivated to read for enjoyment and information. We employ the most up-to-date, success-oriented, motivational teaching techniques and incorporate home activities that reinforce the students' learning in
enjoyable and authentic ways. The Reading Clinic offers 10 weeks of reading assessment and instruction with graduate reading teachers for students ages 5 through adolescence. Individual assessment for the students, instruction using the newest research-based methods, parent sessions, and family literacy ideas ensure that our program delivers extensive reading help for the entire family.
Ages: Usually the children are school age; however,
we are flexible based on the needs of your child.
Adult programs are also available.
Times: Tuesday or Thursday-
hour-long sessions at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m.
$150 per semester (10 or more weeks); one hour per week;
additional $25 parking deposit required.
