Reading Club for Children with Special Needs Registering Now

Summit Community Programs and TryCAN are pleased to announce that the Reading Club will be running again this fall, a series of 4 weekly classes on Wednesdays starting September 25 from 4:45-5:30pm at the Summit Community Center, 100 Morris Avenue.  The classes continue throughout the fall after the first series, so register when you are ready.

This is a popular and affordable class designed for children ages 5-9 to help struggling or reluctant readings experience the joys of reading.  In a completely embarrassment and failure free setting, the class will capitalize on strengths, instill self-confidence and foster a Can-Do attitude to help children read more confidently. 

Our Club is led by Sarah Hanson, a Certified Teacher who has a wealth of experience as a teacher in the school system and well as extensive experience teaching reading to students with unique needs. Sarah has also worked extensively in recreation for young children, so she brings a unique perspective to our program and is able to meld her love of education and recreation into our reading club.  

In addition to working on core skills depending on your child's area (such as decoding, word attack, comprehension, making appropriate reading choices) using books, games, music and other activities, the Club plans on holding one class each session at the library to allow your child to make book or other reading choices in the community.  In the near future, the Club will also do some reading activities on laptop computers.  

As always, our trained and experienced teen Peer Mentors will be at every class to help the students participate, learn, and have fun.

A great class – and at only $13 a week.
