We focus on helping students in grades 1-12 who are experiencing difficulty learning to read and write. Working collaboratively with parents, teachers, and school administrators, we assess each child’s strengths and needs and then implements appropriate research-based interventions.
Our RWL Students
The RWL serves students in grades 1-12 having a range of learning profiles: some struggle just a bit, while others experience severe reading and writing difficulty. Some are diagnosed as having specific special education needs while others are not eligible in their respective schools for special support services in reading and writing. Some do reasonably well in reading, but struggle in writing.
Each student is assessed ($125) based on a collection of research-validated formal and informal measures, to determine areas of strengths and needs. Assessments represent the critical literacy domains of motivation and interest, phonemic awareness and phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and writing. In addition to identifying children’s capabilities and skills, these assessments provide a starting point for determining the instructional materials and strategies that will lead to improved reading and writing proficiency.
We document the student’s progress from beginning to end of the tutoring. The report includes all assessment results and a description of the instructional strategies used, the texts read, and recommendations for continued progress. Parents and any school personnel involved in the child’s instructional program are invited to attend a conference on the last day of the term to review and discuss the report.
