Students who have reached college age without reading and writing skills face enormous challenges. At the college level, workload is increased while supports are decreased. Each student is expected to perform independently, achieving homework, assignments and grades on their own. For the privilege of higher education, students or their families pay tuition and related costs, expecting this investment to ensure a successful future. A struggling student’s anxiety tends to rise with expectations! 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.
A knowledgeable and supportive instructor can make the difference for a struggling college student. At Dyslexia Achievement Center, we assist many such students. First and foremost, we provide skilled, individualized instruction in core skills of reading and writing. We can evaluate the student’s work to pinpoint other deﬁcit areas which can then be addressed along with the core skills. Goals for this work include developing foundational ability and correcting skill gaps. Additionally, proﬁcient instruction can foster advanced level skills to match college level requirements. Flexible scheduling can be arranged to accommodate the student’s class schedule.
A minimal investment in academic tutoring can protect the signiﬁcant investment in your future!
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. Anxiety, poor self-esteem and stress are common, along with difﬁculty in communication and social interaction.
In the workplace, dyslexics experience barriers to information such as job training, operational procedures and safety guidelines. These barriers impede performance, opportunity and advancement. Though dyslexics are protected under the law, many are reluctant to reveal their disability to their employers.
It is never too late to learn! High quality instruction can help every reading challenged adult to build skills and improve their potential for employment or advancement. For instruction to succeed, it is essential that the student be taught language structure by a thoroughly trained and supportive expert using evidence-based methods and materials. Adults have neither time nor money to waste; the teaching must be focused, efﬁcient and effective!
