The annual College of Education and Human Development Reading Clinic at Texas A&M University will begin its next session this fall. The clinic is designed to provide assessment and individualized reading instruction for local students who are challenged with aspects of the reading process – from kindergarten through high school.

The clinic session includes three assessment sessions in November and approximately 16 tutoring sessions beginning in February for instructional purposes. Texas A&M graduate students, who are certified teachers pursuing further certification as reading specialists and/or master reading teachers, will be assigned to work one-on-one with each child as they diagnose reading problems, create a remediation plan, conduct remediation lessons and complete a follow-up report.

Spring tutoring sessions will be held twice per week, one on campus Tuesday evenings and the other at a mutually agreed upon time/place between families and their graduate student tutor. Sessions generally last one hour. The fee for the Reading Clinic services is $275 for the diagnosis and tutoring sessions, with a $50 deposit due upon enrollment and the remainder to be paid by May 1. A discount is available for TAMU employees.
