Reading intervention can make a significant difference in the long-term reading abilities of any student.
At Dehesa, literacy is a top priority, especially among minority students. From Monday to Friday, a credentialed Response to Intervention teacher works with students in a small group setting to identify and address the specific learning needs of English Language Learners, Title VII students and children with basic reading skill deficits.
Each group meets with Dehesa’s reading teacher twice a week for 30-minute sessions to provide specialized, systematic, and multisensory intervention.
Due to Dehesa’s 1:15 teacher to student class ratio, teachers also have the opportunity to use extra time to complete in-class intervention/enrichment for students who do not qualify under Title VII, an ELS program or as a struggling reader. Through differentiated instruction, teachers can ensure student succeed by meeting the needs of all learners, regardless of their initial reading abilities.
