Denver non-profit Every Child Reading announces the 3rd annual Super Star Summer Camp, designed to provide intensive support to kids entering grades 1-9 who struggle in literacy. The environment supports success in both reading and math, along with building self-esteem and self-advocacy skills. Instruction is provided by highly qualified Yoshimoto Orton Gillingham (OG) trained teachers.
“Many kids with dyslexia feel disenfranchised because of this invisible disability”, says founder Elenn Steinberg. “We want students to gain skills as well as feel a part of something. Being in community with other kids who have similar challenges enables them to experience how amazing they really are, and supports them to find safety and belonging.” Students will participate in groups of no more than 4 with closely matched skill levels in Reading, Math, and Writing groups. One-on-one tutoring is also available.
This year there will be a Technology Heroes strand allowing older students the challenge of discovering technology. Experiential problem solving and foundational keyboarding skills will engage and support students to better succeed with the technology they need in the school setting, and to help them feel like heroes. On Friday mornings, parents are invited to participate in informational workshops targeted to better support their children’s’ learning endeavors, while the students participate in a well-deserved creative session. Teachers are highly qualified and well-practiced in the OG methodology, and multisensory math and writing approaches. They come from various public and private schools including Denver, Arapahoe, and Cherry Creek Public Schools.
Super Star Summer Camp is proven effective for students struggling in school during the regular academic year, and students are anxious to return year after year. For further information and pricing, please contact Elenn Steinberg at 4everychildreading.com
