Summer Reading & Math Programs
Individualized programs at special summer prices
Summer can be the perfect time to focus on the underlying difficulties that make your child’s school year so challenging. We draw from a range of reading, learning, and math programs to develop an individualized protocol to meet your child’s unique needs.
We offer steep sibling discounts if you have others in the family who could use some reading help. While you can use our traditional 30 or 50 minute protocols, our most popular summer program is our 90 minute Intensive.
In just a couple of months we can help your child break the cycle of learning and reading frustration. Our software is online and backed by personalized service. This service includes professional oversight, weekly reporting and online rewards. If three or more family members wish to participate in a program this summer, call and ask about our Gemm Summer Family Pack.
The Summer Intensive
Our Summer Intensive can achieve in two months what takes 3-6 months during the school year. This multiple-program service provides a variety of exercises for up to 90 minutes a day (note, the protocol length can be adjusted week to week as schedules change over summer). The longer the protocol though, the faster the rewards. Consequently, many students prefer to keep a consistent 90 minute protocol.
We will develop an individualized curriculum that may include multiple learning, reading and/or math programs in one or two daily blocks, 4-5 days a week.
Our summer math and reading program options include:
- Cognitive and foundational reading skill training using Fast ForWord Language v2 or Literacy.
- Reading specific skill training — fluency, spelling, syntax and reading comprehension drawing from the Fast ForWord Reading series.
- Reading fluency and comprehension practice with Reading Assistant, speech-recognition based software.
- Adaptive, curriculum-aligned math and math fact fluency software.
Additionally, we may include BrainWare Safari, a cognitive skills program that works on attention, organizational and memory skills. We also offer ACTIVATE software, a program designed to help students improve executive function.
During the school year, where schedules are tighter and many children are exhausted from a tough school day, we tend to run shorter sessions and tackle the above goals sequentially. Our summer reading programs provide a unique opportunity for an accelerated approach. If a month or two more is needed, students can continue into a school year-friendly 30-minute protocol. Due to the unique needs of every student, we offer additional months at a discounted rate.
