About Student Sessions

We usually see students twice per week. However, we could recommend up to four sessions per week, depending on how severe the reading deficit.

We administer criterion-referenced and other informal assessments at the first session to determine your student’s reading and spelling levels and identify gaps in learning. Every four months, we retest so you can see your student’s progress. You’ll also receive frequent reports from your Reading Specialist about what your student has been learning, with comments on progress and suggestions for learning.
