    LITERACY CENTERProvides literacy assessment and instruction for students entering grades 1-12 who are experiencing difficulties in reading and/or writing. This includes problems with decoding, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, writing, and study skills. Teachers employ a variety of instructional approaches, based on the most current educational theory and research. Assessment and instruction are provided by New York State-certified teachers completing certification or a Master’s degree in literacy. Each new student entrant is individually evaluated before the instructional sessions begin, and an individualized plan is developed to meet the specific literacy needs of each student. The evaluation includes a combination of formal and informal assessments, personal interviews, and writing samples. Based on the results of the evaluation, students are placed in either small groups (no more than four students) or in an individual setting. Conferences inform parents of progress and make recommendations for support at home. At the end of the semester, a summary report is written for all students. Programs are offered during three semesters per year: Fall, Spring, and Summer. During the Fall and Spring semesters, classes meet for twenty, forty-five minute instructional sessions. In addition, Saturday classes are available; a single, ninety-minute session will be held per week. The cost of instruction is based on group or individual placement. A summer session is also available. For more information, contact the Literacy Center.NassauLITERACY CENTERADELPHI UNIVERSITY
