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.

Founder: Marlene Easley

(Emeritius, Retired)

Dyslexia Unlearned was founded in 1998 on the premise that dyslexia is a learned response, that can therefore be unlearned. As a certified public school teacher in Washington State, she's taught children and adults for over 30 years in public and private schools, specialized learning centers and daycare.

As a child, Marlene experienced the education system as a dyslexic. As an adult she went on to choose teaching as her profession and a way to open the doors to learning and make a visible difference in the lives of others.

Marlene began her work with dyslexia by achieving all then currently available certifications through Davis Dyslexia Association International® as a dyslexia program facilitator, teacher trainer and school mentor. She parted paths with DDAI in 2004 to enable her to include her own program techniques as well as those of other widely recognized educational professionals.
