Does your child struggle with learning to read? Enrollment is now open for the fall 2015 session of the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center Reading Clinic, which begins on Sept. 9.

The clinic provides individualized, one-to-one tutoring using assessments and evidence-based instructional methods shown to promote reading. Currently, the program has openings for struggling readers with learning disabilities and dyslexia in grades K-8.

Students will be assessed to determine instructional needs and to target individual tutoring.  Progress will be measured regularly, and instruction will be adjusted accordingly. Parents will receive regular updates on their child’s progress during the session. Limited partial and full scholarships are available to those who qualify.

To apply or for more information, call (615) 936-5118 or email readingclinic@vanderbilt.edu.
