We offer a supplemental reading program that combines traditional and innovative teaching methods to improve academic performance.  The core components support, prevent, remediate, and enrich student learning. We serve children with a wide range of learning profiles and diverse cognitive needs.

"Identifying and intervening with young children at risk for reading failure is critical for the development of reading proficiency. While parents, teachers, and health professionals can often spot health problems, few are trained to identify the "red flags" of reading disabilities. This can have far reaching implications- research indicates that 65% of children at risk for reading difficulty in kindergarten will continue to read with difficulty throughout their school years if they do not receive early and appropriate intervention."
