the project

Everyone loves to hear a good story.  Everyone does not posess the ability to read and comprehend  written word.  I remember my mother reading to me as a child challenging me to step out of my comfort zone and use my imagination. 

The ability to read allows one to live life with confidence; having the ability to inturpret the world around them on a personal and interpersonal level. Read With Me! strives to  provide clients with lifeskills to act and react to difficult real life situations clients may encounter. Read With Me! is an adult literacy reading program for enhanced cognition and memorialzation. 

Read With Me! is a commity resource  provider for adults with learning disabilities and  persons with special needs.  Counselors, habilitation specialist and home care providers work one on one with clients  in  whole group learning.  After each reading presenter, clients and staff review read materials and complete follow-up activity relevant to subject matter and sessions goals. 

We are raising funds for open, free, public workshops on the Northside in 2020.
