Excitement in the 6th Grade

Intervention Specialists

Attributions: 

The Intervention Specialists at Santaquin Elementary are trained in the University of Utah Reading Clinic programs, as well as Nebo Plus.  They are able to help basic readers, as well as struggling older readers, with fluency and word recognition through a consistent one-on-one tutoring program or through a group of three or four student tutoring.  With the help of teacher, guardians, and the intervention program, there has been a continuous improvement with the students reading on-grade level.
