Services for K-12 Students
The Reading Specialist and the Reading Center Faculty have considerable expertise in working with parents to ensure student success in reading. Parents and a member of the Reading Center team can work together to develop an action plan to meet the student’s needs at home. When appropriate, parents can share the action plan with school personnel. Materials are available for check-out to support the action plan.
