No, not from high school…. from the Children’s Dyslexia Center. 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.
Lexi has learned a lot the past three years and I highly recommend it for children with dyslexia.
