Early Intervention Summer Program - Jump Start to Reading

For most children, an awareness of the phonological structure of language generally develops gradually over the preschool years and is a key indicator of later success in learning to read.  Research has revealed that approximately 80% of our students with dyslexia have core deficiencies in phonological awareness, which respond well to early intervention and appropriate instruction. Our Jump Start program is designed for Pre-K and Kindergarten age students.



Jump Start to Reading aims to increase:

  • letter knowledge
  • phonological and phoneme awareness
  • book knowledge
  • vocabulary and language skills

Our classroom learning environment:

  • is language-rich
  • is play-based and experienced-based
  • involves both center activities and group activities
  • provides multiple experiences with books, vocabulary, handwriting, phonological activities, and interaction with adult-guided dialogue and language development
  • allows for the creation of Portfolios of children's writing and work

Who can attend?

Children who:

  • are 4 or 5 years old and who have had one year of preschool or kindergarten
  • are struggling with learning letter names, sounds, rhyming, and/or general language
