The Graduate Clinical Practicum Program
Students from Grades 1 thru 12 attend instructional sessions twice weekly for diagnosis and instruction in fall and winter terms. In summer terms, children meet four times a week. As a requirement in their degree program, teachers seeking advanced certification as Reading Specialists provide an in-depth diagnosis and individualized instruction of students who wish to improve their reading skills. This diagnosis and instruction is provided under the supervision of a faculty member in the Graduate Literacy Education Program.
The Community Program is designed to meet the needs of children unable attend the graduate program because of scheduling problems or lack of space in the graduate program. The community program also services children and adolescents who have good reading skills but wish to improve reading skills with additional strategies. The Community Program tutoring is $40.00 an hour. All participants in the Community Program are required to complete diagnostic evaluation at a maximum cost of $200.00. The diagnostic evaluation includes a written report of the evaluation and initial instruction. The diagnostic evaluation is waived for prior attendees of the Graduate Literacy Education Center Program. Space in the community program is determined by availability of high quality tutors.
