Stretch and Catch® is a results driven reading center with a proprietary method of teaching reading to all students at all reading levels. On average, our students move up 1 entire reading level every 5 sessions.
Stretch and Catch® has a proven track record of helping children who are gifted, children with learning disabilities and every level in-between. Stretch and Catch® uses a developmentally appropriate, hands-on program to teach each child how to read and spell at his/her instructional level.
We specialize in teaching reading at each child's instructional level from preschool - middle school, including students with dyslexia and other learning disabilities. Stretch & Catch® is also very appropriate and beneficial for foreign exchange students. Before starting, each child is given an Initial Literacy Assessment that will determine his/her instructional reading level. After the assessment, we create a specific literacy plan for each child.
We use a developmentally appropriate tactile-phonemic program that will help each child hear, see, and feel the patterns within words. This program is intended to be a part of a balanced literacy plan which includes fluency, comprehension and writing. Our spelling program is interwoven with our reading and writing program. Students learn how to spell unknown words while at the same time they learn to decode unknown words while reading.
Our 1:1 private online sessions have the same amazing results as our in-person sessions. On average, our students move ONE READING LEVEL EVERY FIVE SESSIONS.
Your child will need:
