WHO CAN APPLY?

First, consult with your child's teacher or interventionist, as a teacher recommendation is required before parents apply. Due to the nature of our program, we only can accept students who may have decoding difficulties or disabilities. Students have a decoding difficulty if they are in grade K-2 and exhibit the following behaviors: 

  • difficulty hearing or "breaking apart" the sounds within words 

  • difficulty recalling the alphabet

  • difficulty naming letters

  • difficulty forming or recalling the sounds that letters make 

  • frequent errors when reading aloud 

MY STUDENT HAS/DOESN'T HAVE AN IEP; CAN THEY APPLY?

Special Education status is not a factor. We are here to help students who haven't mastered the code-- yet.

HOW DO I APPLY?

Teachers recommend students, but recommendations are now closed for Summer/Fall 2021. 

Please note that a student's DIBELS/TRC data (reading data from the school) is the primary factor in determining his/her need and fit for the program. 

WHERE IS THE CLINIC?

The Clinic currently runs virtually. In future cohorts, we will return to our two locations.
