We started the Springfield Center for Dyslexia and Learning because our own kids were diagnosed with dyslexia and our schools weren't clear on how to effectively teach our children to read. Some of us didn't have a diagnosis but just knew something was not right with our kids and their ability to acquire reading skills. While our kid's teachers were concerned they were unable to offer us the support that we thought our kids needed.
Our children thought something was wrong with them. Everyone else in the class was making progress but they struggled to learn the basics. Many of our kids had a lot of anxiety about going to school and may have headaches or stomach aches weekly or even daily. We knew our kids were bright and intelligent but were frustrated because they were unable to achieve their best in the classroom. Certainly, our kids weren't the only children feeling this way!
Provide educational, charitable, and supportive services to individuals with dyslexia. Delivering research-based multi-sensory teaching methods in a positive learning environment that ignites the student’s inner strengths and inspires them to be engaged in lifelong learners building foundations in literacy (reading, writing, spelling).
