Reading, math instruction offered

WELLSBURG - The All For Reading Learning Center will be holding a summer program for children and teens with dyslexia or difficulties with reading or math, Monday to Aug. 5.

Based at the former St. John School, the program will involve two 50-minute sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays or Tuesdays and Thursdays, said instructor Teresa Kowcheck who, with Cathy Hervey, have been certified in the Orton-Gillingham approach to teaching reading.

The two teachers have undergone two years of training in the method, geared to students' various senses and has been found to be successful with children with learning dyslexia, but can be helpful to all children, Kowcheck said.

Caitlin Kocher, a recent graduate of Marshall University who will be entering West Virginia University medical school, also will be available as a math tutor. Parents interested in registering their children should call (304) 914-7471 or e-mail by Friday.
