CLaRI- The Center for Literacy and Reading Instruction

CLaRI- The Center for Literacy and Reading Instruction Welcome to the official CLaRI page! This page is a resource for current UB Literacy Specialist students, as well Literacy Specialist alumni.

CLaRI is a reading center that provides diagnostic and instructional services to children in 1st through 12th grade and conducts literacy research. For almost 50 years, CLaRI has helped thousands of children with various reading and writing needs by providing diagnostic and instructional services. At CLaRI, we have been able to help children reading on grade level, but demonstrating a weakness in one area of literacy development, to children reading slightly below grade level, to children reading and writing many years below grade level.

Mission: Our Goal is to create success for children who are struggling to read or write. Through evaluation, instruction, and planning for reading and writing success, we support children, their parents, and their teachers. We are committed to the education of all children regardless of their socioeconomic, linguistic, cultural, religious, racial, or ethnic background.
