Reading Rocks Program

Reading Rocks is a Program offered by the Learning Disabilities Association of Halton (LDAH). This program provides students with two-on-one literacy instruction to improve their reading skills. We offer this program completely free for parents so that we are able to reach families that cannot afford tutoring or other private services. I have attached a program flyer, which will provide you with additional information about the program.

In order to provide this tutoring service to elementary school students, we depend on volunteers, who plan and implement an individualized literacy program for an assigned child. Volunteers gain valuable experience working with children and the skills required to plan an engaging literacy program. I would like to offer this opportunity to high school students as an opportunity to complete their community service hours. Students will receive 32 hours per session. We offer this program to parents for free, and to do this, we rely on volunteer support.

Interested applicants are invited to complete a Reading Rocks Volunteer Literacy Tutor Application Form from the website www.Ldahalton.ca.   For more information contact the Reading Rocks Program coordinator – readingrocks@ldahalton.ca
