Sponsor one of our services for children with dyslexia Let us know which service or school district you are concerned about
1. SCHOOL DISTRICT INTERVENTIONS:
We support school districts to better understand and acquire the tools they need to teach and support children with dyslexia and struggling readers.
We offer "school impact" educational programs for entire school districts including the administration staff on implementation practices and our "smart scheduling" planning tool.
We partner with nearby school districts and organize low cost multi-district training events.
We set up fun summer camps at school districts that facilitate teacher training & 1:1 tutoring.
School interventions not only help the 20% of students with dyslexia, ALWAYS train teachers in classroom structured literacy programs this will increase levels of reading for all students.
We need donations so that we can initiate interventions in low-income and under served school districts.
2. PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHER TRAINING: We organize cost effective teacher training including mentoring so teachers will be able to administer scientific evidence-based multi-sensory structured literacy approaches or programs to fidelity. Well trained and supported teachers enable students to make faster progress.
3. PUBLIC SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGIST TRAINING: We organize cost effective training for educational psychologists including implementation procedures/practices that identify students with dyslexia or at risk of dyslexia before second grade.
4. PARENT SUPPORT GROUPS: We offer support groups for parents as we have found that the emotional stress caused by not learning how to read effects the whole family. Some of the symptoms include; negativity around school, anxiety, lack of ability to focus, low self-esteem and behavior issues.
5. WOMEN IN PRISON: 85% of dyslexia is hereditary - by identifying dyslexia amongst women in prison and teaching them how to read (and how to advocate for their children) we are effectively helping many more people with dyslexia. We also plan to target underprivileged women in drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs who have dyslexia.
6. SELF ESTEEM: Provide/organize environmental nature conservation projects and outdoor group-building activities to bring students with dyslexia together so they may identify with their peers and increase self-esteem.
