Learning Resource Center

The Indian Hill Primary School Learning Resource Center (LRC) is a place where students come for extra support in reading and sometimes in math.  The students who come here have usually gone through a multi-factored evaluation from which it has been determined that they have a disability and need academic help.  I also work with some students who have been recommended by the Intervention Assistance Team “as if they have been labeled with a disability”.  These students have consistently scored very low on the Early Literacy Assessment which is administered three times a year at the primary school.

Students attend my class for 30 to 45 minutes, 4 days a week.  I usually have 2 to 4 students in a group.  This number of students is small so that I can give each of them more individual attention to meet their needs than they area able to receive in the regular classroom.  I use several different methods in teaching the students.  One is the Orton-Gillingham method of teaching phonics and sound blending.  I also use repeated reading of passages to help increase the students’ fluency in reading.  Sight word recognition is reinforced by sending home word cards for students to practice.
