The Readers

The Readers          <previous story>          <next story>

Two young siblings were struggling with reading, and their CASA volunteer, Diane, recognized that they needed help strengthening those skills. She took the initiative to try and get them assistance. She acted as a liaison between the school and a community program to find a free reading volunteer. While waiting for this service to begin, she increased her visits to the kids so she could read with them. When the children were moved from a foster home to a relative’s home, Diane went with their caregiver to register them for school and made sure that their IEPs were successfully transferred and they were enrolled in summer school. Diane’s efforts ensured that these children got the reading help and support they needed, both in and out of school.
