Plan of study – Kayla Niosi

Description of student

Kayla Niosi is a fourth grader at Cottage Lane Elementary who is currently at a first grade reading level. Kayla is an only child and has been diagnosed with ADHD, but currently not taking any medication. She shows the symptoms ADHD child posses but they are tamable. Her IEP indicated that her independent reading level is a K, but after assessing Kayla I believe she is at a level 1 reading level. As Kayla’s 1st trimester report states, she has made some progress. Kayla seemed shy and insecure when we first met. She would not speak loudly and often I would have to make her repeat her answers, as I was unsure of what her response was. By the first session she opened up more and by the second session she fully opened up, warmed up to me, and has progressively shown a positive attitude and tries her best. She loves two pets, a cat and a dog. She also enjoys horseback riding. I will try to incorporate book about animal’s trough out this semester for Kayla to read aloud. Based on the completion of two QRI readings, Kayla is at a first grade instructional reading level. While Kayla was reading aloud, I noticed some things that we should work on together to improve her reading skills. My plan this semester will be to work on skill building strategies to improve Kayla’s weaknesses.
