It is our mission of the Children’s Dyslexia Center to provide free of charge, the highest quality, state-of-the-art, multi-sensory tutorial reading and written language instruction to children with dyslexia and to train tutors in the art, science and practice of tutoring children using the Orton-Gillingham approach to multi-sensory teaching of reading, spelling and writing.
Historically named 32º Masonic Learning Centers for Children, Inc., Now called the Children’s Dyslexia Center was initially planned and fund-raised beginning in 1996 for the first learning center and construction was complete January of 1999. Our first director was hired in May of 1999 along with our first tutors and students beginning shortly thereafter. We started with 2 tutors and 4 children. We were officially the 17th center to open nationwide. We were happy to uphold the class size of 1 ratio to continue to have one on one tutoring between the student and the teacher. To date, we have accepted over 100 tutors and over 240 students have benefited from this program.
