Summer Reading Remediation

The Louisiana Center for Dyslexia will offer summer reading remediation for students in Grades K-12 from June 5-August 4.  Exact times will be determined as students are screened and grouped.  The focus will be on decoding and/comprehension as needed.  An initial reading screening will be used to determine placement into the program.  This will NOT be a diagnostic assessment and CANNOT be used to obtain accommodations in school.  Cost for initial screening and 16 remediation sessions (approximately 1-1 1/2 hours each) will be $345.  For more information or to register, call 985-448-4214.
