About The Literacy Center
The mission of The Literacy Center at SUNY New Paltz is two-fold: to provide our teacher candidates clinical opportunities in the diagnosis and remediation of reading and writing difficulties, and to provide literacy instruction to children in our local mid-Hudson Valley communities. In addition to our basic mission, we act as a link between school districts and community organizations interested in reading and writing excellence, and we promote “best practices” based on current research in literacy education.

Our programs meet the rigorous standards of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).
