Dyslexia Assessment

It is estimated that up to 20% of the population is effected by dyslexia or some degree of reading difficulty. Of these, only a small percent ever receive a diagnosis of dyslexia. An accurate assessment, completed by a credentialed professional, provides to these individuals an explanation for their difficulty.

Tutoring & Academic Support

Effective remediation of dyslexia and related reading, writing and spelling disorders is achieved through education. Specifically, a student will benefit from skilled instruction provided by a trained specialist using systematic, sequential, multi sensory phonetic methods of instruction.

Exam Prep

High stakes testing grips students and parents alike; so much rides on the outcome of such tests, and test anxiety can derail even well prepared students. Examples of high stakes tests are college admission tests, entrance exams, pass/fail exams and annual academic placement exams.

Who We Help

We focus on helping children and adults who have difficulty reading, writing, spelling, and also with math. We utilize one-on-one tutoring, as well as small group instruction based on students whose needs and progress are similar.

Dyslexic actor Henry Winkler, who played the Fonz in the celebrated TV series Happy Days, said, “To me, reading looked like a magic trick, and I wasn’t in on the secret.” Teachers who have been trained by IMSLEC, ALTA, AOGPE, and Wilson Language Training are not magicians, they are trained, knowledgeable professionals that get results.

This is what we do.

K4-8

Preparing to read is the most important learning task for preschool age children. Yet a certain percent of children miss this critical development phase and are at risk for reading failure. Early screening can identify children at risk for dyslexia by assessing their prereading skills.

9-12

Identification of a reading disorder and delivery of remedial instruction become more difficult as students age. Accumulated frustration and failures lead to poor self esteem.

College

Students who have reached college age without reading and writing skills face enormous challenges. Motivated students may attempt to “power through” this stressful period, but without well developed reading and writing skills, most will falter and many will fail or withdraw.

Adult

Many adults in our society have gone through life not knowing what causes their learning challenges. Besides difficulty with reading, writing, spelling and education in general, adult dyslexics often have acquired coping mechanisms which may help or hinder them in society.
