Launching Language for Literacy

For summer 2020, LLL will be offered free of charge, thanks to a generous donation from the Scottish Rite. The 2020 program will be in an online format.

Launching Language for Literacy is a research-based intervention program designed to boost literacy skills through a focus on linguistic processes.  

This camp is designed for children who have completed first grade and are having a specific difficulty with oral language and/or reading development. We will consider children who are entering first or third grade if we do not reach our capacity with those completing first grade. If your child has an IEP or 504 plan, please submit a copy with this registration.  

The program includes:

Classroom time

Children will have the opportunity to participate in teaching activities to increase reading and literacy skills including decoding, listening comprehension, reading comprehension, spelling and writing. Small group rotations within the classroom will be utilized to assist children at different levels on particular goals including oral language skills and improved social interaction.

Individual or small group therapy 

Children with participate in sessions that focus on specific communication goals including improved speech production, grammatical formulation and narrative re-tell.
