Press release submitted by Northern Illinois University.

Northern Illinois University, University Outreach Services, will offer eight different reading skills programs for 4 year olds through adults. Tuition and materials fees vary by program level.
Programs begin the week of June 10, at Black Hawk College, Moline.
Reading programs for younger students build comprehension and students learn the phonics and fluency skills they need to become strong readers. Programs for older students and adults are geared toward improving comprehension and study skills, vocabulary, and speed reading. The skills taught in the classes reinforce the importance of reading for pleasure and developing a lifelong love of books.
Programs have been offered by Northern Illinois University's Outreach Services since 1995. The programs are taught by instructors from the Institute of Reading Development.
