Confidential, Objective Evaluation

Before instruction begins, we assess a child's reading ability, strengths, and needs. If we find that he or she has needs other than reading, we will provide a referral to another resource and serve as an advocate for the child if desired.

Instruction Based on Continuous Assessment

After the initial evaluation, we design an intervention plan to meet each students situation. Our master instructors and graduate students (experienced teachers completing Wisconsin Certification in reading teaching) carry out that plan in individual sessions. Progress is continually evaluated. We do not hesitate to modify a lesson if a student’s progress indicates the need.
