Reading Skills Screening Night

DePaul University Education & Counseling Center

Reading skills matter...

Whether you are engaged in a good book, pouring over a newspaper, or just looking at a sign, reading skills allow you to interpret and become engaged in the world around you. According to the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, “Reading is the single most important skill necessary for a happy, productive and successful life.” Developing those skills takes active engagement from an early age.

Reading & Literacy Screening

Wednesday, Oct. 26th, 5:45-7pm

2247 North Halsted Street

Chicago, IL

Assessment nights are held 2-3 times a year in the Education & Counseling Center. Assessments generally take 1 hour and test for a child's specific strengths and weaknesses when it comes to reading and literacy. A variety of formal and informal measures are used to assess skills in the areas of phonological skills, word reading/decoding, reading fluency, reading comprehension, and spelling. A written report summarizing results and recommendations is provided approximately 1 week following the assessment session.


The cost is $30 per child. For information please call 773-325-7745 or email us at ecc@depaul.edu. Financial assistance is available if needed.


*** If you cannot attend the screening, but would still like reading help, please call or email us for scheduling! ***
