Literacy Center

The mission of The Literacy Center at SUNY New Paltz is two-fold: to provide our teacher candidates clinical opportunities in the diagnosis and remediation of reading and writing difficulties and to provide literacy instruction to children in our local mid-Hudson Valley communities. Literacy instruction includes the direct tutoring of children and adolescents, as well as consultation with teachers on literacy issues across the curriculum. In addition to our basic mission, we act as a link between school districts and community organizations interested in reading and writing excellence and we promote "best practices," based on current research, in literacy education.

The Literacy Center currently provides literacy services for local children and adolescents during the spring and summer semesters. The facilitation of our programs require the support of our university faculty and staff, community members, local school districts, graduate assistants, work-study students, and volunteers.

Our programs meet the rigorous standards of National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).
