Above are just three examples of what a dyslexic child may see when they try to read. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates that one in five children have some level of dyslexia. People with dyslexia are usually more creative and have a higher level of intelligence – their brains just process things differently. Albert Einstein, Magic Johnson, John Lennon, Nelson Rockefeller, Agatha Christie were all dyslexic. For dyslexic children, school can be extremely frustrating and difficult. They are often labeled as not attentive, lazy, slow and careless. The Children’s Dyslexia Center, Inc. provides clinically-proven dyslexia tutoring services using the Orton-Gillingham method. This technique has a documented success rate (exceeding 95%), resulting in significant gains in reading level even in the first year of this two-year program. More than 6,000 dyslexic children have been helped by this program.
Established in 1994, we are one of 45 accredited Centers across 13 states and are governed by a local volunteer board. Our services are free of charge and open to all children in Southeast Michigan.
For over seventeen years, the Scottish Rite Masons have partnered with us providing tutoring space in their facilities.
The annual cost at our local center to provide tutoring is $4,000 per student. The number of children we are able to serve is limited by our resources. These services are supported completely through donations with 93% of all funds going directly to children’s tutoring services.
Providing a dyslexic child with the skills to read is a gift that is life altering. Please consider supporting tutoring for a dyslexic child though a donation to the Children’s Dyslexia Center of Southeastern Michigan.
