Graph of fluency improvement rates

As the Philadelphia area’s only reading research organization connected to a school for children with learning differences, we wanted to confirm what we’ve always believed: AIM Academy students were improving their reading through our Integrated Literacy Model of instruction. After close analysis, we were thrilled to know that the majority of our students are exceeding national fluency norms for average rate of improvement. Not just compared to their peers with learning differences, because there are no national fluency norms for children who learn differently, but for ALL children.
