EmpowerTM Reading 


Empower Parent Brochure Oct 2020.pdfEmpower Parent Brochure Oct 2020.pdf


TCDSB offers the EmpowerTM Reading Decoding & Spelling (Gr. 2-5, Gr. 6-8) and the Comprehension & Vocabulary (Gr. 2-5, Gr. 6-8) programs in select schools as a Tier-3 reading intervention for students with LD/LI-type learning profiles in the area of reading. When the program is not available in the home school, eligible students could access the appropriate Empower program in designated locations called “Hubs” for the duration of one academic year.   
EmpowerTM Reading is a year-long program,.  The prescribed teaching commences promptly in early September. Accordingly, all Empower Hub admissions are finalized in early June for September admission.  Therefore, the student’s home school is required to assess his/her suitability for Empower Reading in March-April, before submitting an application by end of April for Board screening and approval to transfer to an assigned Hub. 
Kindly contact your child’s school administration for more information.
