“This is our first year participating in Children’s Choice Initiative structured reading program, and the results have already far surpassed our expectations. I highly recommend The Children’s Choice Initiative as an extremely effective training resource. Their ongoing support has also been very helpful.”
Robert Gaffney, Vice President, Clio Public School Board
“The Children’s Choice Initiative Reading Program is top notch, and we are seeing a substantial increase in reading scores. I believe that this program will not only be successful in Clio School District but in every school district in Michigan!”
Children’s Choice Initiative offers over two decades of experience in multi-sensory, structured, sequential language instruction. What we have been able to do is to take these proven methods that have traditionally been administered in a 1-on-1 setting and develop a delivery system that works with great success in a full classroom setting.
Our trainers at CCI have trained many teachers in these methods of structured language with unparalleled results. We have been able to achieve a 92.4% success rate in moving children from below grade level in reading to meet or exceed their current grade level. Of course, the true winners are the children with their newly found confidence and their love for learning!
