Summer Program


The Tufts Center for Reading and Language Research has partnered with the Northeastern University Speech-Language 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 and Language Clinic on the campus of Northeastern University.
