Programs for the Community

The Oakdale campus serves South Shore residents in a variety of ways.

The Reading and Writing Education Center
The Reading and Writing Education Center offers one-on-one treatment and diagnosis to elementary and intermediate school students who experience difficulty reading and writing. The Center is operational year round.

Services are provided by diagnosticians and clinicians who are trained in literacy methodology, are certified teachers and hold a master’s degree or higher.  Diagnostic assessments include an intellectual evaluation, as well as a language and literacy evaluation.

Our professionals can diagnose and assist children in overcoming numerous literacy issues, such as difficulty with word recognition, vocabulary development, reading comprehension and writing. Our diagnosticians and clinicians are available to meet with clients after school and on Saturday mornings.
 
Unique benefits of the Center include:

  • One-on-one services
  • Diagnosticians and clinicians with a master’s degree or higher
  • Certified teachers
  • Consistency — children will have the same clinician for every session to develop a relationship and produce more effective feedback
  • Modest costs
