Graduate Programs in Reading
The M.ED. Reading program is designed to prepare reading specialists, primarily for K-12 education, but also for community colleges, industry, adult education programs, commercial education centers, and private practice. The 36-credit hour program is highly structured with eight required courses and three electives. It is developmental in design. Students grow in both their knowledge and application as they proceed through the program.
The Reading Clinic provides services for children and adolescents who have learning difficulties, who are lagging behind their peers in reading, or who are not motivated to read for enjoyment and information. Individual assessment for the students, instruction using the most up-to-date research-based methods, workshops for parents, and home activities that reinforce students' learning in enjoyable and authentic ways ensure that the Clinic teachers deliver extensive reading help for the entire family.
