An Innovative Approach
The emphasis of this clinic is on treatment. We provide ongoing assessments on each student's progress on a weekly basis. This keeps everyone on track; tutor, student, and parents stay informed so that the instructional program can be individually tailored to the student's needs.
How The Reading Clinic Works
- Students are tutored for one 40-minute session, 2 times per week during the school year (spring and/or fall sessions).
- All students are evaluated to determine specific reading needs.
- Ambitious but realistic goals are determined for the tutoring period.
- Licensed, experienced teachers and supervised, advanced undergraduate and graduate students provide the tutoring.
