a professional screening
assessment and
tutoring by volunteers

writing, and spelling.

Camp

The purpose of the summer program is to provide DTP students with the opportunity to increase their reading, spelling, and writing skills in a short period of time. Our summer program sends students to camps at The Jemicy School, Odyssey School, The Gow School and Kildonan School, which are private schools for dyslexic children. At camp, DTP students improve their self-esteem and social skills, and experience the fun of summer camp. The children receive four hours of one-on-one and small group instruction in the areas of reading, oral and written language, and math five days a week for five weeks. In the afternoons, they participate in all of the extracurricular camp activities. Each camp has a different theme each year, which is explored through writing and art projects.

The summer camp experience is one of Dyslexia Tutoring Program’s most exciting aspects. The program began in 2003 with the support of a grant from the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, Inc.
