Summer 2024 Intensive Reading:
Tampa Day School has been successfully teaching reading to children who have not succeeded with traditional instructional approaches for over four decades. We are pleased to be Tampa Bay’s premier resource for an intensive, one-to-one instructional summer reading program. Our program differs from traditional approaches to remediate reading by integrating the senses of hearing, seeing, and feeling to promote further reading development. These multi-sensory, comprehensive strategies are based on reading research and target skills in phonemic awareness, phonics, spelling, reading fluency, vocabulary development, writing, higher-order thinking skills, and comprehension. Utilizing the appropriate strategies and your child’s learning profile, a unique treatment plan is designed to meet your child’s specific needs and maximize individual gains.
During the summer program, children receive four individual instruction sessions each day, five days a week, for five weeks. Detailed lesson plans are written every week, and a log of every session is recorded. Parents are welcome to preview our program and/or your child’s sessions during the program.
Which Children Benefit from our Program:
- The child with a diagnosis of Dyslexia
- The child who has never grasped initial reading skills and has difficulty decoding words
- The child who reads the words accurately but does not understand what he/she reads
- The child who reads haltingly, lacking fluency and speed
- The older student who exhibits significant reading difficulties, despite years of instruction
How your child’s needs are assessed:
We administer an extensive reading assessment for pre and post-measurement as part of our summer program. In some cases, it is beneficial to have access to a full educational evaluation, including cognitive processing measures, to assess your child’s underlying strengths and areas of weakness.
Once your child’s specific reading needs have been identified through our assessment process, an individual remediation plan is developed to address those specific needs. Intervention strategies will target your child’s weaknesses in phonemic awareness, word attack, spelling, sight words, reading fluency, reading accuracy, reading comprehension, oral comprehension, and written language skills.
