The mission of the Dyslexia Tutoring Program is to teach low-income children and adults with dyslexia or a language-based learning disability to read. This is accomplished through
a professional screening
assessment and
tutoring by volunteers
whom we have
trained in The
method of reading,
writing, and spelling.

To become a volunteer, one must be at least 18 years of age, have a basic understanding of the English language and take a free 22.5-hour training course in the Orton-Gillingham approach. This training course is free to the volunteer as long as they agree to tutor one of our students for 60-hours. Once you have completed the 22.5-hour training course you will be matched with a Dyslexia Tutoring Program client that lives close to where you live or work so it there is not a hardship to search out a tutoring location. We ask that our volunteer tutors met with their student at least once a week but the time, location and frequency of tutoring sessions are between the tutor and the student.
