Hazel Miller Croy Reading Center
The Hazel Miller Croy Reading Center provides a number of services to the community. One-on-One Intervention and Assessment Services for children who need assistance in reading and literacy are provided at our center on the CSUF campus in EC24. Assistance with locating recommended Private Tutorial Services is also provided. All HMC Reading Center services are coordinated by professional faculty in the Literacy and Reading Education Department.
Intervention - Intervention for elementary and secondary students is offered on the Fullerton campus. Clients are served by alumni reading specialists and graduate students completing the requirements for the Master’s Degree in Education with a Concentration in Reading, and/or the California Reading/Language Arts Specialist Credential. Sessions are scheduled once a week for 90 minutes. A series of 13 sessions begins at the start of each semester. All testing and instruction is supervised and guided by faculty.
Evaluation of student needs typically begins with administration of an Informal Reading Inventory to estimate current reading level for initial instructional activities. A plan for follow-up testing and specific intervention is then developed and implemented throughout the semester. Clinicians summarizes their work with students in a formal report, which concludes with recommendations to parents and teachers for continued instruction.
The HMC Reading Center is designed to provide an engaging and supportive environment for various ages and learning styles. A wide assortment of instructional supplies and materials is available, including books, instructional games, and instructional technology. Clinic tuition is $350 per semester. Tuition assistance is available, with documentation of free/reduced lunch qualification.
- Assessment - Assessment packages are available through the HMC Reading Center. Screenings are conducted by reading specialist alumni. Clients receive a report detailing reading and literacy levels, strengths, needs and suggestions for intervention. The fee for this service is $300. Assistance may be available with documentation of free/reduced lunch qualification.
- Private Tutorial and Assessment - For community members interested in private tutorial serves, the HMC Reading Center maintains a list of qualified reading specialists who can accommodate a variety of reading and literacy needs for students of all ages and abilities.
