The Literacy Clinic is designed to help individuals of all ages improve in the areas of reading, spelling, writing, and comprehension. Whether you are struggling with a learning disability or simply need to improve literacy skills, TLC can offer a treatment program tailored to meet a variety of needs.
An initial reading assessment is required to determine the student's current reading ability. This assessment investigates letter to sound association, word attack ability, word identification skills, spelling, reading, and oral comprehension.
Information gathered from any assessment(s) is reviewed with parents (or the student if he/she is of adult age) and further recommendations are made. The assessment process allows us to determine what type of intervention is required or whether intervention is needed at all. Assessment results also act as a baseline to gauge future growth, and post-testing is done at regular intervals to determine progress and future needs.
Treatment time varies depending upon the severity of the student's dysfunction, the age of the student, and the number of hours per week the student attends. Treatment time may be less for students who only need enhancement of their skills. Typically a minimum of three sessions per week is recommended for consistent results.
