Intervention

The Newgrange Early Intervention Program is based on the findings from the National Reading Panel (2000). Our approach stresses the explicit teaching of the alphabetic principals through phonological awareness training. It has been shown that this is the most efficient way to teach children to read. Our intensive teacher-training program provides teachers with the latest research-based multisensory structured language programs. Newgrange staff members work side-by-side with educators, modeling lessons and providing support. These programs and lessons are designed to provide reading instruction that includes phonemic awareness, systematic phonics, fluency and comprehension instruction. Spelling and writing lessons are stressed throughout the program.

This model has been implemented in the following schools: Trenton School District: Monument, Columbus, Grant, Jefferson and Stokes, and in the Lawrenceville School District: Slackwood Elementary.

Adult Literacy

For the past decade, Newgrange has collaborated with many community agencies in the Mercer County area to assess and address the needs of their clients. All of these agencies work with clients who have literacy issues. In addition, the clients may have financial, social and emotional needs that cannot improve without educational intervention to raise their literacy levels. These agencies include Daylight Twilight, HomeFront, Literacy Volunteers of Mercer County, Trinity Church Crisis Ministry, Clay Street Learning Center, TEDCO, and Princeton Nursery School. Literacy issues continue to top the list of concerns expressed. Many of the clients served by these agencies lack the basic reading skills needed to be gainfully employed.

Students are accepted into the program based on our ability to match them with a tutor. The fee for this service is $100 per session due at the time of service.  Scholarships are available on a limited basis.
