About Us

What is Dyslexia? Dyslexia is an inherited learning disability afflicts children without regard to race or gender. It is incurable, but it can be remediated successfully. 


Dyslexia affects up to 20% of all people. The most common reading disability, it can easily deprive children of a happy childhood and success as an adult. Reading failure is the most commonly shared characteristic of juvenile justice offenders. The National Institutes of Health says, “Dyslexia is the leading cause of reading failure and student dropouts in our nation”.

The Children's Dyslexia Centers have three specific areas of focus.

  1. Tutoring for students who struggle with reading and language.

  2. Training for teachers and other adults to work with students who have difficulty with the reading and language processing.

  3. Providing access for research to the largest database of teaching methods for students with Dyslexia in America.
