Academic Intervention Clinic

Sponsored by the HDC

The Academic Intervention Clinic (AIC) provides academic assessment and intervention services to children who are experiencing academic difficulties. The clinic offers services to help improve a child's academic performance by assessing academic skills, identifying and implementing effective interventions, and monitoring progress. The AIC uses state of the art intervention technology to design, implement, and measure student progress in reading, mathematics, and written language.

Services are provided by specially trained undergraduate and graduate students under the direct supervision of UWEC faculty with expertise in academic assessment and intervention.

We are currently partnered with several schools in the Altoona School District (Altoona Elementary School), Eau Claire Area School District (Longfellow, Montessori School, Meadowview, Sam Davey), and the McDonnell Area Catholic Schools in Chippewa Falls (Holy Ghost). Services during the school year are only offered to those students enrolled in those school. We also offer academic assessment and intervention services to children during the summer. Those interested in a referral should contact the Human Development Center at 715-836-5604.
