Vanderbilt Kennedy Center Reading Clinic

A clinic providing one-on-one instruction for struggling readers. We offer instructional reading services for K-8 students of all abilities, who need additional supports, strategies, and targeted reading practices.

An Innovative Approach

The emphasis of this clinic is on helping children with reading difficulties make maximal gains in reading. We provide non-diagnostic entrance testing for placement purposes and progress monitoring to keep track of student progress so that the instructional program can be individually tailored to the student's needs.

2023 UPDATE: The VKC Reading Clinic will not offer a Spring 2023 season. Updates will be posted on the Reading Clinic webpage as details are solidified.
