The Reading Success Center has now been replaced by the BearsRead Literacy Camp under the direction of the Department of Teaching & Learning. Click the link below for more information.
The UCA Reading Success Center provides students in the Central Arkansas area with improved achievement and abilities in reading and language arts. Three sessions are held each year (fall, spring, and summer) and all Center activities are designed to help students increase their reading and writing skills and their motivation to learn.
Support of Regular School Programs
The Center directly supports regular school reading and writing programs, and uses varied approaches and materials. Diagnosis and broad-based assessment procedures provide information to identify each student’s strengths and needs. An individual reading success plan is formulated for each student.
Instruction is provided by UCA undergraduate and graduate students who are pursuing elementary or advanced degrees in reading and education. Under the guidance of UCA faculty, students who attend the Center will work individually and in small groups to improve literacy skills. A great deal of reading and writing is the heart of the program, and the student’s own interests and needs are the focus of Center activities.
Special Help for Students with Dyslexia
Tutors can also provide intensive one-on-one interventions to students with dyslexia based on a systematic, multi-sensory research-based approach to teaching the phonology, decoding, and reading skills of the English language. Tutoring sessions will include Orton-Gillingham based lessons.

Students grades K-8 from school districts throughout the Central Arkansas area are recommended for the Reading Success Center by teachers, administrators and parents.
