Welcome to the Reading Lab!
Our program supports the Reading Department and the courses offered by providing self-paced individualized lab classes. These lab classes correlate with and expand the lessons introduced in the actual reading courses. Each lab class is variable unit, allowing students to earn from 0.5-2.0 units. Students use a variety of audiovisual, computer, and textbook instruction materials.
