Dyslexic Children Literacy Project

1 in 5 children has dyslexia according to Yale University. There are 2000 dyslexic children within a 40-minute drive of our center. Our goal is to help as many of them as possible become strong readers through the proven-effective Barton Reading and Spelling System. Our passion is evidence-based youth literacy instruction paired with the latest technology. The science is clear that one-on-one tutoring using the structured literacy (Orton-Gillingham) approach is the most effective and fastest way to build a dyslexic child into a strong reader. Our goal is to break the cycle of endemic generational poverty here in coal-impacted Appalachia.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Reduce generational poverty in rural, under-served, coal-impacted Appalachian Ohio by helping dyslexic children reach their full potential through evidence-based literacy instruction.

Offer evidence-based literacy instruction in the form of one-on-one tutoring to children in the community with dyslexia.

In 2022 we have 4 tutors. We are in the process of expanding our capacity by building a new facility in an easy-to-reach central location and training more tutors.

We have come a long way in a short time. Starting with 4 tutoring students just 5 years ago, we now have 35 students. We are raising funds to build a new multipurpose facility to greatly help the students of Coshocton County and the surrounding community. We will train more tutors to help more dyslexic children reach their full potential. It's the least we can do to help these children.
