Children participate in reading and writing activities specifically tailored to their needs and interests. Activities address all five domains of literacy: word study (phonemic awareness and phonics), fluency, comprehension, vocabulary, and writing (composition and spelling). As tutors work with their students, they carefully monitor children's performance and evaluate areas of strength and need.

Literacy Support for School Age Children – Reading Evaluations
What Type of Evaluation Do We Offer?
Assessment includes an evaluation of a student's reading, writing, and spelling performance as well as measures of potential and attitudes toward literacy. A combination of standardized and informal instruments are used; however, the emphasis is on informal measures that closely approximate actual instructional experiences in the school setting. Conferences are scheduled as soon after assessment as possible, and a full written report is presented at the end of the program. Referrals to other programs on campus for speech and language evaluation or for psychological testing can be made if recommended.
What Type of Instruction Do We Provide?
The instruction provided at the LEC reflects the most current in literacy research. It is our intention to help individuals learn to approach literacy and language tasks of various kinds with confidence by teaching them strategies for the unique demands of a given situation. It is also our desire to foster a lifelong love of and interest in reading. Our instruction focuses on the development of literacy through the medium of good literature, both works of fiction and nonfiction. For older students, instruction is available for literacy and study skills strategies for the content areas. We also have access to computer stations and the Internet during tutoring, and encourage students to acquire basic computer literacy. Where appropriate, conferences with teachers will be arranged in order to help coordinate our teaching efforts with those of the schools. Periodic informal diagnostic assessments are included in tutoring sessions.
