Free Early Reading Screenings

Marburn Academy offers free early reading screenings for children in kindergarten, first and second grades whose parents want to know if their child is likely to encounter difficulty in learning to read.

The screening is developmentally appropriate and based on meta-analyses of research in foundational early literacy that is predictive of later literacy skills.

The screening is quick but thorough, and results of the screening and personalized feedback are shared immediately with families.

This program is supported by:

Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation
Discover Financial Services
Harry C. Moores Foundation
Worthington Industries
