Book Ends Literacy Clinic

Book Ends Clinic

Book Ends is the Sacred Heart University Reading Clinic located in SSB 108 in the Student Success Center on the Fairfield Campus. It opened its doors for the first time in 2008 and is rapidly becoming very popular because of our quality instruction and nurturing environment.

Who is eligible?

Students in first grade through fifth having difficulty in reading are eligible for enrollment in our clinic. 

What is the plan?

Your child will be assessed in reading and writing by a certified teacher pursuing Connecticut Reading Certification, an intervention plan and specialized tutoring based on each child's individual needs will be developed. Karen Waters, Director of Connecticut Literacy Specialist Program (CLSP) and Clinical Assistant Professor of Education will supervise and coordinate all aspects of your child’s instructional and assessment plan along with your child’s tutor, and is available to respond to questions and concerns from parents.

Parents will have an opportunity to meet and speak with your child’s tutor after each session, and will receive weekly take home reading materials.  Progress reports will be sent home every three weeks.

Parent Workshops

Research has proven that home/school partnerships lead to increased academic achievement. Parents will have opportunities to participate in free parent workshops that will be offered during the time that your child is being tutored. These workshops are designed to provide you with strategies for helping children at home.
