Here you can learn the latest about our dynamic early literacy programs and our children’s progress. Children who do not learn to read and write in their early years are likely to struggle with learning throughout school, increasing their odds for a lifetime of hardship. The Reading Team immerses young children who are at high risk of reading failure in a rich and engaging learning environment that successfully eliminates this threat.
Studies show that the Reading Team confers substantial benefits on the hundreds of children who participate in our early literacy programs: an average improvement of from 50 to 70 percentile points in reading ability in one year; literacy gains that endure and grow; and results on the New York State English Language Arts Exam by our 3rd and 4th graders that surpass their age-mates in school districts across New York City. The lives of the children we serve are being transformed and their academic and life prospects expanded beyond measure. See for yourself!
