Summer camp helps students improve their reading


Pittsburg State is working to ensure younger students are sharpening up on their reading skills even through the summer.

For the second year in a row, the university will be hosting its Secret Codes Camp. The program invites area kids diagnosed with dyslexia or other reading complications for a two month course to improve their skills. The hope is to have the kids reading at their grade level or higher by the time school is in session in the fall.

“When induviduals gain confidence in reading and become more competent readers, their confidence to do many other things increases as well,” says David Hurford with the PSU Center for Reading.

The program is open for all school age children who need help with reading. For more information or how to sign up, click here.
