$500 (three-week camp)

Park Tudor’s Summer Reading Clinic is designed to provide individualized support and enrichment for children struggling with foundational reading skills. This specialized three-week course will consist of both small group instructional and one-on-one tutoring sessions customized for the specific learning needs of each child. Elements of the Orton-Gillingham and Lindamood-Bell approaches will be used for direct instruction, with an emphasis on phonemic awareness, decoding skills, basic spelling rules, sight words, reading comprehension, and written and oral expression.

Parents registering their child for this course will be asked to complete an initial registration survey outlining your child’s literacy needs and interests. Students will be given a short assessment on the first day of camp to inform placement in small groups and provide data for individualized lessons.
