Developing an instructional app to expand the HillRAP reading intervention’s impact to more students
The Hill Center is an educational non-profit that serves K-12 students who are struggling academically, especially those with learning differences, through its school year, summer, tutoring, and teacher training programs. Its grant supports the development of the Hill Learning System, a technology solution for delivering Hill’s individualized reading intervention to students, and providing educators with the learning pathways, online courses, and resources they need to successfully teach students who learn differently.
“I started a 2nd grade student using the Hill Learning System this year. He came to us with major learning difficulties…early this week he celebrated reading his first words. On Friday, I had him read a short story to me. He jumped up shouting ‘I read a book! I read a book! That's the 1st book I've ever read!”
– Kerry Anne Garcia, Exceptional Children Teacher, Mooresville Graded School District
