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
    READING/WRITING LEARNING CLINICDedicated to providing literacy support to children, adolescents, and adults in an environment where learners have the safety and support that allow them to take risks and gain confidence as they move toward developing mature control of literacy skills. The Reading/Writing Learning Clinic provides services to families in the communities that adjoin Hofstra University as well as in the larger metropolitan area. New York state-certified literacy specialists provide weekly small group or individual instruction. Instructional sessions focus on reading and writing as meaning construction and are carefully crafted to develop a flexible set of reading and writing strategies to use while reading or composing texts. Phonics and spelling skills are addressed and taught in the context of meaningful language study. Our program is modeled on a Reading/Writing workshop approach that creates an environment for engagement in author study, literature circles, and strategic reading and writing instruction. Students also participate in inquiry-based projects making use of fiction and/or nonfiction texts available from our library collection of award-winning children and adolescent literature, as well as through digital technology. The Reading/Writing Learning Clinic also offers professional reading and writing evaluations for school-aged children and adults. Our evaluations are qualitative assessments that describe the learner’s use of reading and writing strategies when transacting with and composing texts. The assessment process culminates with the development of a Biographic Literacy Profile which provides a detailed appraisal of the learner’s reading and writing strengths. Each literacy evaluation is conducted to advocate for the learner. Reading and writing proficiency is described in terms of meaning construction and our evaluations provide parents and teachers with straight-forward and individualized recommendations to support literacy development inside and outside of school settings.
