Be Able to Read & Write
We identify each learner's challenges - decoding, spelling, fluency, or comprehension. Based on their areas of need, we determine the specific tools/curriculum they require to advance.
We support writing advancement whether they need help at the sentence, paragraph, or essay level. We integrate the appropriate tools, strategies and technology on an individual basis.
While some learners may need extra support, others need to be further challenged. Be Able provides writing and reading enrichment to push learners to their full potential.
Be Able to Compute & Problem Solve
We provide individualized supports and tools to be used both in and out of the classroom for those learners who struggle with number sense (math facts, basic operations, number visualization, subitizing, etc.)
Many learners are challenged by word problems and multi-step processes. Be Able provides scaffolding and strategies to break these down and make them more accessible.
Some learners may need to be further challenged in the area of mathematics. We also provide this push in order for students to continue to advance.
