Children's Dyslexia Center
A Scottish Rite Charity
Children's Dyslexia Centers, Inc. provides tutoring at no charge to children from early elementary through high school who have been diagnosed as dyslexic. Children are eligible regardless of economic status or Masonic affiliation. The positive impact of early intervention on the lives of these children and their families is enormous and inspires our commitment to this program.
The curriculum used as the basis for tutoring and tutor training at all Children's Dyslexia Centers integrates the principles of two of the leading Orton-Gillingham approaches. The Orton-Gillingham approach, developed in the 1920's, uses a sequential, multisensory phonetic approach. Thus, a variety of sensory data is used to help children understand the written word.
What we do
What is Dyslexia?
Dyslexia is a neurological condition caused by a different wiring of the brain. There is no cure for dyslexia and individuals with this condition must learn coping strategies.
Research indicates that dyslexia has no relationship to intelligence. Individuals with dyslexia are neither more nor less intelligent than the general population. But some say the way individuals with dyslexia think can actually be an asset in achieving success.
There is no financial cost to our students and parents. However, you have a cost of time and dedication to your child’s learning.
We like to think—Pay it Forward, so that others can learn
who follow us!
The Children’s Learning Centers tackle the challenge of dyslexia hands-on, both providing one-on-one tutoring for children with dyslexia and by training a growing body of highly skilled and dedicated tutors.
