READ 718

ADDRESS: 420 Atlantic Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11217; PHONE: 718-576-3228
ADDRESS: 336 Malcolm X Blvd Brooklyn, NY 11233; PHONE: 718-618-0095
EMAIL ADDRESS: info@read718.org
Spring Cycle: April 4th, 2022 – June 16th, 2022

Read 718 is a Brooklyn-based nonprofit dedicated to buliding strong, confident readers. Their mission is to close the literacy gap in Brooklyn and to help ensure educational access and equity for all Brooklyn children.

PROGRAMS:
👉 READ 718 After School
Their READ 718 After School program is READ 718’s core remediation program and is designed for children in grades 3-8 who are reading below grade level.

To be eligible for READ 718 After School, children must be in grades 3-8, come from a low-income household that receives government assistance like SNAP or Medicaid or earns 80% or less of the Area Median Income (AMI) of New York City, and be reading below grade level based on our reading assessment, parent/guardian intake questionnaire, and school report cards.

They  ask for a $25 fee for their intake assessment. They offer a sliding scale for the 10-week cycle. Families choose to pay either $100, $65, or $25 total for the full 10 weeks. If a family is unable to pay, please register and make a note on the application. They strive to accommodate all families.

👉 READ 718 Remote
READ 718 Remote was born out of necessity during the pandemic, but it has proven to be successful in providing children in grades 3-8 the same instruction as their core After School program, but on Zoom.

They work specifically with children from low-income households who are reading below grade level. To be eligible for READ 718 Remote, children must be in grades 3-8, come from a low-income household that receives government assistance like SNAP or Medicaid or earns 80% or less of the Area Median Income (AMI) of New York City, and be reading below grade level based on our reading assessment, parent/guardian intake questionnaire, and school report cards.

They ask for a $25 fee for our intake assessment. They offer a sliding scale for the 10 week cycle. Families choose to pay either $100, $65, or $25 total for the full 10 weeks. If a family is unable to pay, please register and make a note on the application. They strive to accommodate all families.

👉 Saturday READing Room
The Saturday Reading Room is an enrichment program designed for 1st-2nd graders to practice their developing reading skills with a trained, high school aged volunteer in a relaxed and fun environment. Children come to READ 718 (Boerum Hill) each Saturday for 8 weeks and work on building fluency, comprehension, and reading stamina. Participants also have the opportunity to play games that build sight word and spelling pattern knowledge. In addition to supporting our youngest READers, this program also provides high school students the opportunity to serve their community in a meaningful and enjoyable way.

The fee for the 8-week Saturday READing Room is $25.

Saturday READing Room will not run for their winter cycle. They will pick up for their spring cycle on April 2nd-June 18th.

👉 READ Up & Fundations
In response to a clear educational need of many of our READers, READ 718 has developed a program that will better meet the needs of children with dyslexia — a common reading disability characterized by particular difficulty learning to decode words. Between 10%-20% of the population has dyslexia, yet there are very few easily accessible resources to support children with dyslexia. Often, schools do not have the appropriate resources to support these children, and families often do not know where to go to help their child, as private neuropsych evaluations and reading intervention can be prohibitively expensive.

Children with dyslexia or those who have trouble decoding words need systematic, sequential phonics instruction. At READ 718, we now offer instruction using the Wilson Reading System (WRS) to small groups at very little cost to families.

Eligibility:
Children in grades 2-8.

Eligibility will be determined by parent reports, school reports, and our READ 718 assessment. Child does not need to have a formal diagnosis of dyslexia, but the assessment must show that they will benefit from this program.

We serve children from low-income households (income is 80% or less of the NYC Area Median Income).

If you are interested in this program, please contact us at info@read718.org for more information.
