The Tufts' Center for Reading and Language Research has partnered with the Northeastern University Speech-Language and Hearing Center to offer The Word Detectives program. Word Detectives provides small group instruction for students entering 2nd - 4th grade who are reading below grade level. The program offers high-quality 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.

The 2018 Word Detectives program will take place in the Speech-Language and Hearing Center on the campus of Northeastern University.
