Our Philosophy - All minds have a job – to learn, to become, and to contribute. But there is a segment of our population to whom learning to read is labored and simple math is not logical. Their growth is blocked and they feel trapped. They cry for help, but few hear or understand them. These people think with mental pictures, not words.

We are here to open learning’s door – to teach them another way so they too can learn, become, and contribute their gifts to the world.

 

Reading Correction Program

The Dyslexia Unlearned Reading Program is a one week program (typically Monday through Friday, 9 to 4) that centers totally on the student. The approach is one-on-one and tailored to each student’s specific needs. It is respectful to the student and is presented in a stress free center that teaches the student to utilize his or her gifts.

Students that have difficulty learning phonics are often in the 15-20% of the population that thinks in pictures. Often they are very intelligent, but may have difficulty expressing their thoughts in words. Because they are taught reading in a manner that is not conducive to their learning style as picture thinkers, dyslexia forms and reading is stunted. Often they fall behind their peers and never catch up even with extensive outside help.

When students are still struggling with reading, writing or math by the third grade this often indicates dyslexia has formed. We teach the student to resolve these issues with clay. They are given the tools and techniques appropriate for a picture-thinker. The student learns how to:

Follow-up after the program includes:

Pre and post assessments measure growth during the one week program. Average growth in one week is a two year gain in reading levels.

This reading correction program is the pre-requisite for the Math Correction Program.
