Read With Me! Online Resources

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 tutorials on our new website to serve our community through COVID restrictions, fighting social isolation by bringing neighbors together through stories.

Read With Me! Online Resources

Hi.
My name is J Roger Davis, BA, psychology and counseling from Pfeiffer University.  I have a passion for literacy, literature and poetry.  I have developed a unique adult literacy online developmental reading program call ReadWithMe!  to assist adults and persons with special needs.    This video will serve as a tool for social service providers and their clients to use as a remote learning resource for students of all ages, English as a second language, enhanced cognition and memorization.    Having traveled the county for màny years with à prestigious poetry group i learned that everyone learns differently and in their own way.  Read With Me make learning fun one on one or in whole  group.

 

Thank You!
