New Camp To Help Kids Read

Kids who have difficulty reading may have a hard time learning at school but now the Hindman Settlement School is trying to do something about it.

The school is putting on a six week summer camp aimed mostly at Dislexic children.
One key to the learning process is a photography program.
Recently the students were given cameras to take pictures of what's important to them... afterwards the teachers help the students write out the captions.

"If it wasn't for us teaching them, they might not know how to read," says Jade Maggard, and adult leader at the camp. "I think that's what's most rewarding watching them grow...and when finally something clicks... That's what makes it worthwhile."

The program also focuses on social values and auditory learning... helping kids to sound out words.
