Ready, Set, Read!

Ready, Set, Read! is an interprofessional program for children ages 4-7 to be held July 6-29, 2016. The literacy and speech-language pathology graduate students co-teach and collaborate in order to evaluate the children’s language and literacy needs and plan instruction using research-based strategies to best meet the needs of the group. Instruction will engage children in multi-sensory phonemic awareness activities and make connections to the alphabetic principle. Children learn essential pre-reading skills and strategies while engaging in fun and creative activities.

  • For any child ages 4-7 who is still learning to read or beginning to read
  • Small Group Sessions
  • 1.5-hour group sessions will run Tuesday-Thursday
  • Co-Taught by Literacy Specialist and SLP Graduate Students
  • $200

Before my daughter participated in Ready, Set, Read! at Loyola, reading was a nightmare. Despite my best efforts to make reading fun, she avoided reading. Homework time was filled with tears, as were parent/teacher conferences. After Ready, Set, Read! my daughter is using the strategies she learned to read successfully at home and at school. Her teacher this year complemented her on how well she uses reading strategies and has asked her to help other students in her reading group! I never imagined that this kind of progress was possible. I am so grateful for Loyola Clinical Center’s Literacy Programs!
