The Role of the Reading Specialist
The primary responsibilities of the Reading Specialists are to support the school’s reading and writing programs.The Reading Specialists provide reading interventions to students, as well as training and coaching for staff. As trainers and coaches, they deliver various literacy-based professional development to the staff and follow up with co-planning and reflective conferences. If students are identified in need of additional reading support, they assess, analyze data and teach intervention groups that target specific reading skills using multi-sensory, explicit, and structured instruction.
