We’re Here to Help You Provide Exceptional Instruction and Support for All

More than a year of disruptions to learning has led to an increase in the number of students reading below grade level. We work with  districts and schools to help ensure all students become strong readers. Specifically, Pivot Learning can work with schools and districts to:

  • Provide professional learning to support great “first instruction” in ELA and math
  • Develop policies and practices for screening for risk factors and the identification of dyslexia and other word reading difficulties.
  • Provide professional learning and coaching to help teachers understand the key characteristics of dyslexia and learn evidenced-based instructional practices that prevent reading difficulties from becoming lifelong achievement gaps.
  • Implement processes to determine whether English learners are experiencing academic difficulty due to language or a learning disability, such as dyslexia.
