Readers begin their journey at the Elevate Reading Center with an initial evaluation. This is designed to show us how the brain is currently reading and processing sounds. Those results then guide us in customizing an implementation plan, whether it be one on one or small group instruction. Readers in small group instruction are carefully grouped by current reading level and age.
Once enrolled, each reader is paired with a masterfully trained reading coach, not a tutor, specifically chosen for them. When pairing our readers and coaches, we look to create a strong collaboration to maximize success as well as fun. Our Elevate reading coaches undergo a phonological screening, rigorous training, and receive continued support and mentorship.
An Elevate classroom isn’t an ordinary classroom. We don’t stand at the front of the room, we don’t lecture, and we don’t grade our readers’ work. We sit right next to our readers and join forces to tackle the lesson together. Each skill is worked and re-worked to the point of automaticity, in a fast-paced environment, in order to keep our readers engaged and confident.
Elevate readers can expect:
• Scientifically Driven Instruction
• Open Communication
• Feedback with Each Session
• Initial, Progress, and Exit Evaluations
• Positive, Uplifting, and Fun Experience
