Description

Reading Assist Fellows serve in Delaware elementary schools, providing one-on-one reading instruction to students in kindergarten through third grade who face significant reading challenges. Fellows teach foundational reading skills to students who might never learn to read through traditional classroom education.

Fellows are trained to be certified dyslexia practitioners and work with up to 8 students (4 students for part-time fellows) for 45 minutes each day, and meet with an experienced coach every week for support and feedback.

Fellows transform the lives of students who may have dyslexia or other reading disorders.
