Screening

Research shows that 70% of those reading below average in 1st grade will still be reading below average in 8th grade. (Landerl & Wimmer, Valas, 1999, 2008, Moats L. C., & Dakin, K. E. (2008))

Early literacy identification makes early literacy intervention possible.

Don’t wait.

Take the step to help your child improve their reading and catch them before they fail. Complete any of these screeners and let us help you interpret them and plan for the next steps to support your child.
