What We Do
FACT: 1 in 5 students has dyslexia
We train high school and college interns, parents, aides, tutors, and teachers to work with elementary school-aged children who are diagnosed with dyslexia or are struggling readers.
We conduct parent, tutor, and teacher training to those interested in the Reading from Scratch program.
We are also partnering with ThinkLexic to hold informative and creative events for the communities. The dyslexic students will learn how to do computer coding at these events, ranging from building land rovers, to robots, to creating computer games. We also provide parent advocacy and dyslexia diagnosis.
In the event debriefing, Dr. Marianne Cintron shares how to recognize dyslexia symptoms and how to help within the school setting or in a private setting.
We Are Unique
FACT: Dyslexia is a Special Ed Issue and A General Ed Issue
No other program has a founder who trains teachers in an Orton Gillingham program called SPIRE, who also conducts her own training to homeschool parents and tutors in her own program called Step By Step reading. As a board member for the International Dyslexia Association, Dr. Cintron schedules many of their events in the Tri-County Branch, and partners with Thinklexic to schedule Family Coding Events. Check out the Events link to see what exciting things are happening.
We are passionate to help close the achievement gap for our dyslexic children, which happens to be 1 in 5 students. Please check out our blog.
