The Center for Literacy’s Reading Clinic provides children ages 7-17 with authentic, meaningful and tailored experiences designed to develop their capabilities as young readers and writers. Educational literacy professionals and CUC reading graduate students provide structured sessions including:
All assessments and instruction are supervised by a CUC Literacy Faculty member and will take place in our Center for Literacy.
Parents/guardians receive daily updates regarding the reading clinic activities and their child's performance and areas of growth. At the conclusion of the program, parents meet one-on-one with the educational professional to receive an informal individualized support document, including suggestions and resources for the child's continued literacy development.
The Center for Literacy's Reading Clinic culminates in a Celebration of Literacy, in which the children receive special certificates of completion and are given an opportunity to share a part of their Reading Clinic experience with family and friends.
For eight years, Concordia University Chicago has implemented the Reading Clinic in more than 20 of Chicago’s public, urban and suburban schools. The program has developed solid partnerships with local schools and has served over 400 students.
