According to Christine McLarty, the Director at the Newport Beach Learning Center, “the summer reading camp at PRIDE is designed to help students in a way that a typical summer reading program cannot. All of the teachers at PRIDE Learning Center are certified in Orton-Gillingham, most of them holding Master’s Degrees and having strong special education backgrounds.”
The summer reading camp at PRIDE Learning Center will run weekly from June – August and children can attend from either 9:00am – 12:00pm or 12:30pm – 3:30 pm Monday –Friday. All lessons at PRIDE Learning Center are one-on-one Orton-Gillingham language and reading lessons.
“The summer months are such a wonderful and effective time for struggling students to boost their skills and close the reading and comprehension gaps,” says McLarty. “Although our reading camp is intensive and highly structured, the staff at PRIDE make it really fun and super engaging for the kids. The kids love it and we have families return to us each summer, many of them from abroad where services are very limited.”
PRIDE Learning Center is a leading tutoring company in Los Angeles and Orange County, for students with learning disabilities. Their reading and comprehension program has been shown to boost student performance almost 2 grade levels in just 3 months. The Orton-Gillingham instruction develops the underlying reading and comprehension skills necessary for students with dyslexia, auditory processing, visual processing, autism, apraxia, ADHD and other learning challenges. It is common to see years of reading improvement after just weeks of intensive instruction.
