In first grade, you could often find Johnavan standing at the library doors peering inside, watching STAIR tutors and student reading together after school.
The next year, Jonnavan made his way to the other side of those library doors. He worked hard and spent two afternoons a week with his tutors reading Clifford The Big Red Dog, practicing his spelling words to make sure they get into his brain, and improving his comprehension of those new words he’s learning.
And his grandmother is proud of all the progress he made during his time at STAIR. She could tell a difference. She used to read everything to him, but now he comes home and reads to her.
