Reading Rocks is an 8-week one-on-one literacy program for children aged 6-12 who require support with their literacy skills (those with LDs and struggling readers). Children are matched with a trained tutor who will develop hands-on activities and games to teach the essential literacy concepts of phonics, sight words, and fluency, while building children’s motivation and fostering self-regulation.Each evening, children work with their tutors to set goals and graph their success in these areas. One of the aims of Reading Rocks is to make reading fun!
We are able to offer this program free at this time because of a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
