Reading Skills Programs
Help your child become a confident, enthusiastic reader with Reading Skills Programs offered by the Center for Urban and Regional Excellence and taught by instructors from the Institute of Reading Development.
Strengthen Skills, Build Confidence, Enjoy Reading
These programs teach key reading skills for every grade, from phonics and sight words for younger children, to comprehension, textbook strategies and writing skills for older kids, and everything in between.
Guided by a knowledgeable and supportive teacher, students in these programs experience reading success again and again, developing their skills and building confidence in outstanding books at the right level of challenge for each age.
How the Programs Work
During the program, your child will participate in six dynamic, live online group classes that build skills and provide great experiences with terrific books – books that are filled with interesting characters, exciting storylines, and engaging themes. Between classes, your child will practice reading and complete fun interactive lessons that develop core skills and build confidence. At the end of the program, you will receive a progress report from the teacher on how your child is doing, which will include suggestions for what your child should focus on next to continue growing as a reader.
An Institute of Reading Development teacher will provide all the support and instruction your child needs to grow as a reader and student. One-on-one appointments are available, and you will also have access to our on-demand Homework Helpline.
