A Four-Week Summer Intensive


Rev Up Your Reading 2021

We have reached 24 registrations for our Summer Intensive, which was the originally planned capacity. All further applications will be put on a summer school wait list. In past years, we have been able to accommodate many of the waitlisted students, and we are working hard to get more tutors involved. Don’t give up hope!
If your student cannot be placed in our Summer Intensive, your deposit is fully refundable.

The application deadline for our 17th annual Summer Program is June 1, 2021. Our Summer Program fills up very quickly, so we encourage you to apply as soon as possible.

Summer Intensive will be July 12 to August 6, 2021, Monday through Friday.

*COVID-19 safety protocols will be followed during our Summer Intensive. The Summer Intensive is also subject to cancelation depending on the current guidance for Multnomah County during July/August 2021.

Our Summer Intensive is open to students entering First Grade up to students entering Sixth Grade.

Summer Intensive will consist of 60 minute of individual Orton-Gillingham tutoring sessions, delivered Monday-Friday for four weeks (20 total lessons). This year, families will have the opportunity to participate in-person or virtually. In-person sessions will be delivered at our office in NE Portland (1907 NE 45th Ave).

A reading and spelling assessment is required for enrollment, to help familiarize our staff with your child’s current skills and abilities. This skills testing is included in the tuition. We will contact you to schedule a 45-minute assessment appointment in June. Your deposit will be refunded if The Blosser Center determines that your student would not benefit from the program.

No professional academic and cognitive testing for learning disabilities is required to participate in the Summer Intensive. If families plan or believe they will want to continue tutoring after the Summer Intensive, The Blosser Center requires that complete testing be done and the results reviewed by our Clinical Director. A list of recommended testers can be found on our Resources page.

We anticipate having room for 24 students. Additional applications received will be added to our waiting list. The tuition for the month-long intensive instruction is $1,400.00. A $250.00 deposit is required at the time the application is submitted. The remaining balance is due by June 21, 2021.
