Individual reading assessment and intervention for elementary and secondary students is offered on the Fullerton campus and the Irvine satellite campus. Clinicians are graduate students enrolled in READ 581 to complete the requirements for the Masters Degree in Education with a Concentration in Reading, and/or the California Reading/Language Arts Specialist Credential. The class meets once a week, with all testing and instruction supervised and guided by Reading Department faculty.
Evaluation of student needs typically begins with administration of an Informal Reading Inventory to estimate current reading level for initial instructional activities. A plan for follow-up testing and specific intervention is developed and implemented throughout the semester. Each clinician summarizes their work with a student in a formal case report, which concludes with recommendations to parents and teachers for continued instruction.
The Reading Center classrooms are designed to provide an engaging and supportive environment for various ages and learning styles. At each site, a spacious room with adjoining carrels accommodates large group, cooperative group, or individual instruction. A wide assortment of instructional supplies and materials is available, including books, instructional games, and instructional technology. Clinic tuition is $200 per semester. Tuition assistance may be available, with documentation of free/reduced lunch qualification..
In addition to one-on-one intervention, the Hazel Miller Croy Reading Center also provides assessment screening which is useful in determining a student’s literacy strengths and needs. These screenings are conducted by reading specialist alumni. The fee for this service is $175 and includes a detailed report.
