Peru State to Offer Free Spring Reading Clinic for Elementary-Aged Children

 

(Peru, Neb.) Peru State College’s (PSC) School of Education will offer a free reading clinic this Spring for elementary-aged children who need additional support to maintain or improve their reading skills. PSC’s teacher candidates will provide the individualized assistance to parents and children.

 

The clinic will begin with a free assessment on Thursday, Jan. 24. Appointments will be arranged. Up to 10 free tutoring sessions, if deemed appropriate, will be scheduled following the assessment.

 

PSC Instructor and Reading Clinic Sponsor Gina Bittner said, “This is a wonderful opportunity for parents to take a proactive step toward helping their child achieve success in the classroom and foster a life-long love of reading. Our teacher candidates will implement a team approach and provide the best possible instruction to foster self-determination and improved reading ability in participants. We’re confident that parents who enroll their children in the clinic will see real growth in their skills and self-confidence.”

 

Space is limited and advance registration is required. For additional information on the PSC Reading Clinic, contact Gina Bittner at (402)872-2366 or gbittner@oakmail.peru.edu.
