This program is more effective if taught for at least 4 months, but we can adjust our instruction to the most tested standards if less preparation time is available. Small-group sessions are scheduled 2 days per week, on Mondays and Wednesdays, or Tuesdays and Thursdays, for 60 minutes each at our Cypress/Fairfield location. One-on-one sessions can be scheduled at any time twice a week at the child’s designated place.
If the child has 7 weeks or less to prepare, we will only teach Reading and/or Writing testing material, test-taking strategies, and social-emotional development activities. The other program components will be omitted. Crunch-time sessions (after Spring Break) are scheduled 3 times per week on days and times agreed by both, the interventionist and the parents, and they take place one-on-one at the child’s designated place. We do not offer crunch-time small-group sessions at our Cypress/Fairfield location due to the intense nature of the intervention.
This program is also available in Spanish for students in grades 3, 4, and 5 who are new to the country or those in bilingual or dual-language programs who will take the STAAR test(s) in Spanish. Please read “Programas de Intervención en Español” for the information in Spanish.
