Summer Program

Overview

Each summer the Center for Reading and Language Research (CRLR) at Tufts University offers small group instruction for students entering 2nd - 5th grade who are reading below grade level. The CRLR strives to provide the highest quality remedial instruction and content engagement to ensure reading skills remain intact over the critical out of school months. Each intervention begins with a review of the student's records and a complete assessment to formulate a reading profile. Scores from assessments are used to formulate instructional groups of similar skill profiles. During group placement consideration is paid to students' abilities and age, and groups do not exceed 5 children.
