The latest report, which can be found here, describes the latest numbers as the highest they have ever been. And according to this report, only 23% of 8th graders are proficient, as measured by the NAEP (National Assessment of Educational Progress).
Our Brooklyn and NYC speech therapy center has seen a large increase in requests for literacy help, early literacy intervention, and support with after school literacy programs. One of the most common reasons that children fail in school is that their reading level is behind heir grade/age level. This leaves the child struggling to keep up with tasks they would normally succeed at if they could just read and understand the material.
Our Brooklyn speech language pathologists provide literacy and reading support for children throughout Brooklyn and NYC. At our Brooklyn speech therapy office, we provide 1-on-1 early literacy activities and support. Our speech therapists work with children of all ages who require literacy intervention, whether its a 2-year old requiring early phonics/alphabet exposure, or a 3rd grader falling behind due to an impairment in reading skills.
