Teacher & Parent Trainings
For Teachers: In-person professional development for teachers on reading readiness and kindergarten preparation. Participants will be given appropriate strategies and information to support students ranging from preschool to older elementary. If desired, multiple development sessions can be offered throughout the year to build upon skills learned and mastered by teachers and students.
For Parents: In-person information session to help guide parents into helping them navigate how best to support their child academically at home and school. This encompasses social and emotional skills, language skills, early reading and math skills. Parents will learn what reading support looks like at home, what skills are most important in Kindergarten, and how best to support their child in the transition to Kindergarten.
One-on-one scheduled meeting: in-person, over the phone, or on an online platform. This may cover further explanation of screening or evaluation results, analysis of tests and reports from the child’s current school, research and direction on school choice, and any academic areas of concern.
