Reading Lab Partnership
The Reading Lab Partnership is a cooperative effort between Hindman Settlement School and Knott County Schools to identify children with learning differences and/or dyslexia. We provide these students with a specialized reading curriculum designed to help them overcome those differences and learn to read well.
In the fall of 2009, the Partnership launched a reading program in three Knott County elementary schools – Beaver Creek, Carr Creek, and Hindman Elementary. In 2017, the Partnership was expanded to Emmalena Elementary. Hindman Settlement School teachers, along with staff from each school, have established reading labs in these three schools to provide specialized assistance targeted to students in grades K-3. Teachers and specially trained instructional assistants work both one-on-one and with groups of students to help them master letter identification, word identification, word attack, phonemic awareness, and passage comprehension skills. This instruction is designed to pair well with the students’ regular classroom instruction.
Hindman Settlement School admits people of any race, color, national, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national, and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
