FREE After-School Small Group Instruction in Phonics
Everyone Reading, Inc. offers a FREE program focused on the basic reading skill of decoding (phonics). Students are eligible to apply if they were born in 2012, will enter grade 3 in September 2020, and continue to struggle with basic reading skills. Students will be screened over ZOOM to determine if the program will benefit them.
The program will run from October through mid-May, following the New York City Department of Education calendar.
Everyone Reading provides professional development for educators in evidence-based approaches to direct instruction. We offer schools and teachers coaching, workshops and consultations in multisensory education to help students with dyslexia and related learning difficulties read, write and spell with competence. Our instructional approaches align with findings of the National Reading Panel and current research in literacy instruction.
The support group provides adults with dyslexia an opportunity to share experiences, successes, challenges and learning strategies. The group is facilitated by psychologist, Betsy Auricchio, Ph.D., and takes place on the second Tuesday of each month. Adults from various backgrounds and careers, including students, filmmakers, bankers and train operators, learn how others live, work and prosper with dyslexia.
The Everyone Reading After-School Tutoring Program will take place once a week, on Tuesdays from November 2018 through May 2019, following the New York City Department of Education calendar. There will be two 45-minute sessions: Group 1 from 3:30 to 4:15; Group 2 from 4:30 to 5:15. Students will receive 45 minutes of explicit instruction and correct practice in phonics and fluency. Vocabulary and comprehension skills will not be covered. STUDENTS MUST BE CURRENTLY IN THIRD GRADE AND BORN IN 2010.
