Unlocking the written word, one sound at a time.

More than 7,500 Delaware students in kindergarten through second grade read below grade level. Many struggle with some level of developmental reading disorder, like dyslexia, that makes it difficult to learn to read in the same way as their classmates.

Reading Assist believes that every student who struggles with serious reading challenges should have access to high-quality, multi-sensory language instruction, delivered by trained, certified professionals. We are the only Delaware organization offering an accredited program for reading intervenionists.

And with the RAI Corps, we provide direct, intensive intervention to students inside schools, using a unique public-private-nonprofit partnership to serve struggling readers throughout our community.
