Teach 36 children with limited English to read



This project will prepare 36+ children aged 6-12 for whom English is a second language and who struggle with learning to read in their schools. Our program is designed to improve children's literacy skills focusing on the basic skills for reading. Children with special needs and children from different language background are our valuable participants.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Students from bilingual communities who have limited English and who need to get some special reading instructions have a dual challenge developing literacy skills. In addition to learning a second language, there is the problem of a low level of literacy in native language or family language. This deficiency initiates the achievement gap in early learners which continues then throughout school.

How will this project solve this problem?

Reading specialists and bilingual special instructors use appropriate curriculum with some elements of cultural components and special techniques for teaching linguistically challenged students from bilingual/bi-cultural communities. Teaching literacy by incorporating these children's cultural background that helps students to develop emergent literacy skills and to make reading progress. We encourage our bilingual families to develop their child's potential and to cooperate with our project.

Potential Long Term Impact

Literacy Master Map program is created for all children with special needs in participating with other children who are without disabilities. We are ready to teach 6-12 children with autism from bilingual/bi-cultural environment. They will get basic reading and communication instructions from bilingual specialists, and it will be helpful to increase student's literacy abilities and to help them to close the achievement gap.
