SUNY Old Westbury to Offer Free Literacy Learning Clinic

Letters spelling out literacy

The SUNY Old Westbury School of Education and its New York state-certified educators are offering a free Literacy Learning Clinic to the community beginning January 31, 2019. The Clinic will provide reading and writing strategy instruction sessions once weekly for 45 minutes on the College’s campus. Families may register online now through January 11, 2019.

This instructional service is dedicated to developing the confidence and proficiency of children and adolescents as readers and writers in a safe and supportive environment. The goals of the Clinic include building students’ literacy strength, and supporting the use of proficient reading and writing strategies.

The classes are being offered weekly through May 16, 2019 at either 4:45 p.m. or 5:45 p.m. There is no cost to families, but parents must remain on-site during the session they commit to attending each week.
