Building Readers

read. write. think.

Our Building Readers program is for children reading below grade level, ages 6-12, who have been recommended by BAC Child Development Specialists.*  Readers meet with tutors twice weekly for six months.  Our reading program uses the Orton Gillingham approach to BUILD each child’s reading skills based on individual needs.  Prayer,  daily homework, and parental involvement are key components of our program.

*Must have completed BAC assessment and family conference to be recommended for Building Readers.


We teach children how to decode words in a systematic way. We provide homework practice with decodable readers that match exactly what the child is learning.  We BUILD confidence, fluency, vocabulary, and joy in the process.


Writing is essential to reading. Building Readers write or encode while they learn to read. We teach finger tapping to sequence sounds, letters, syllables, and sentences in a variety of multi-sensory methods.


Good readers become thinkers. Comprehension is vital to a developing reader. We use a variety of strategies to develop thinking skills.
