Literacy and Reading Program

 

We know that students who are developmentally delayed or have related problems need to have access to reading
professionals who can help them to learn when the regular classroom situation
has not worked. Reading specialists are important.

STATEMENT OF DR.
CARMELITA WILLIAMS, PRESIDENT, INTERNATIONAL READING ASSOCIATION, WASHINGTON,
DC.

 I have worked in Even Start since May of 1993 with families from all walks of
life. Members of these families have had real educational needs. These needs
have been in life skills, parenting skills, high school diploma or GED
attainment and language acquisition.

STATEMENT OF MS.
JAQUELINE MARTINO, TEACHER, YORK EVEN START PROGRAM, YORK, PENNSYLVANIA;
ACCOMPANIED BY PAM NEIFERT, DIRECTOR OF FEDERAL PROGRAMS, CITY OF YORK,
PENNSYLVANIA.

As a first grade teacher at Tovashal Elementary School, wife of a high school special education teacher and mother of five children ranging from sixth grade to college, I have had a variety of experiences that have helped me to arrive at my conclusions about successful reading instruction.

I am not a rocket scientist, so I could not begin to put someone into space, but you do not have to be a rocket scientist to launch a child on an academic course of achievement that will enable him or her to reach their highest potential.
