Mission: Our mission is two-fold: 1) To provide research-based structured literacy instruction to readers who struggle to meet decoding and literacy benchmarks for school and work and 2) To provide apprenticeship opportunities for aspiring Reading Specialists and general education teachers.

    Vision: The Clinic envisions a Washington, D.C. where research-based, intentional instruction is accurately matched to student need so that every resident—no matter income or age—can learn to read. The Clinic also envisions a D.C. where teachers are equipped with the skills they need to address student difficulties in decoding and literacy.
