LINC Cares programs for youth provided at LINC’s family properties help children
access educational resources and personalized support. Andres’ mother, Griselda
came to one of LINC Cares’ Family Nights at Mosaic Gardens at Taylor Terrace in
Sacramento and asked LINC Cares’ Resident Services Coordinator Diana about the
progress her child was making academically while attending our after-school program.
Diana told Griselda that Andres was doing very well in math but needed improvement in
writing. Griselda had noticed Andres’ challenges with writing and felt that
Andres’ teachers weren’t able to help enough. Although Andres was about
to enter the third grade, he was unable to write in complete sentences. Andres had
been diagnosed with dyslexia. Although his teachers believed that the issue would
get better on its own, Griselda had noticed his struggles worsening.
Diana agreed to work with Andres to improve his writing and reading. Through attending
LINC Cares’ Summer Literacy Program and working individually with Diana on his
spelling and writing, Andres’ skills have improved significantly. Griselda has
noticed the progress in Andres’ writing and is proud to see that he is able to
write in complete sentences!
