About Us

Reading Assist recruits, trains, and embeds AmeriCorps members from around the country willing to commit to a school year of service. We provide our accredited one-on-one Reading Assist Intervention Program to struggling readers in kindergarten through third grade in high-needs elementary schools in the Wilmington, Delaware, area.  


For students with significant reading challenges, such as dyslexia, traditional classroom or small group reading instruction and methods are simply not enough. Reaching reading proficiency is even more challenging when such a student is also an English language learner or born into a high-poverty environment. 


Reading Assist intentionally targets struggling readers in under-served schools who are in the lowest 10% in reading proficiency and have not experienced reading success through traditional methods.  Our multi-sensory, structured approach to literacy education is grounded in our 30 years of experience working with struggling readers, and informed by the latest advances in cognitive neuroscience and reading research.


Through the years, Reading Assist has helped thousands of struggling readers, establishing a regional and national reputation as a leader in literacy support to children, parents, and educators.
