Every Child A Reader

2024-2025 ECAR | Every Child a Reader

About:  Every Child A Reader is a one-on-one literacy tutoring program focusing on the development of reading and writing skills.


4:30-5:15: Students meet with their tutors. Parents are together participating in a facilitated discussion.

5:15-5:30: Students all debrief together while the parents meet with the tutor to discuss what was covered during their session and to give any assigned homework.

Club 21 aspires to graduate an entire generation of capable readers with Down syndrome who will, as a result, be more independent and confident in their daily lives.
