About Us

Our Mission is to provide proven educational intervention, without charge, to children with dyslexia.

The Children’s Dyslexia Center of the Lehigh Valley and the Children’s Dyslexia Center of Philadelphia have offered tutoring services to hundreds of children as well as nationally accredited, comprehensive dyslexia training to educators. We use a proven research-based, multi-sensory approach for learning the basic language skills of reading, writing, and spelling.

Millions of school children with dyslexia endure frustration and demoralization on a daily basis as they struggle to acquire skills that many of us take for granted. Dyslexia Centers tackle the challenge of dyslexia head-on, both by providing free tutoring for children with dyslexia and by training a growing cadre of highly skilled and dedicated tutors.

We are the only providers in the area offering this help, without charge, to area families. All funds to operate our centers are raised locally. Please consider donating so we can continue our mission and help children reach their full potential.

Letters, Comments, and Testimonies from Parents

“Best experience ever!! So glad we found you!!!”

“As far as I am concerned Orton-Gillingham is the only way to bridge the gap in a reading delayed person and bring them up to grade level in just 2 years. AWESOME!!!!”

“The Children’s Dyslexia Center gives me peace of mind. I know my child is in the best care possible. The Children’s Dyslexia Center provides a loving, friendly environment while still maintaining a very professional approach and atmosphere. I am very grateful to have my children be accepted and receiving tutoring from the Center. I love the Center and the staff that that work here.”

“My son has learned to read because of the Reading Center. I can’t begin to express how grateful we are that our son has the confidence and ability to be reading almost on grade level. You have given us hope that we didn’t have 2 years ago.”

“Since attending the Dyslexia Center, my daughter’s confidence in herself has improved. She has learned to be her own advocate in school and has shown great improvement in her reading. Our daily homework struggles have drastically reduced. She often gets her work done without struggle. She still has her challenges, but she is able to help herself or suggest ways to help her with school work, etc. Thank you for everything!”

“ My daughter has made tremendous improvement in the 2 years she’s been attending the Center. Her confidence level with reading out loud and spelling on her own is 100% better than what it was before she started here. I’m so, so thankful for this school and for all of her teacher’s work with her.”

“This program has been transformational for my daughter. I have seen her confidence in reading and writing grow after time spent here at the Center. She picked up a book to read for FUN for the first time this spring without being asked. This program has been priceless. I can’t thank you enough for introducing my daughter to such a caring and compassionate tutor. She has made all the difference in the world and opened a door that was previously locked. Thank you for ALL you do to help kids with dyslexia.”

“We are so thankful to have found the Center. Our school system did not have the support needed for a child with dyslexia, nor did they acknowledge that his needs were above and beyond what they were able to provide. After finding the training and getting the information we needed from the Center, we have been able to work with the LS staff at our school and advocate for better instruction for our child. Our experience over the last 2 years at the Center has been nothing short of an answered prayer. Our son has grown and made great progress. I truly believe that we would not be where we are today with his academic success without the Center. The Center has changed his/our future. We will be forever grateful!”

“I am greatly appreciative of the services offered by the Dyslexia Center. I have seen a huge difference in my son’s ability to read and decode words. Prior to finding the Center, I felt helpless and wasn’t sure how or where to get help for him. I think everything that the Center does is great and we are very fortunate to have been able to have my son attend. Keep up the great work!”

“I feel very strongly that the curriculum and teaching strategies have significantly impacted my son’s reading achievement. I also feel very certain that the methodology used in this program far surpasses the programs currently in place in districts across the area.
Unfortunately, there are many more constraints in regards to money, training, and manpower plaguing our school districts for this type of specialized program.
I am very happy with my son’s progress and I look forward to bridging the gap completely in his path toward reading success and mastery. Thank you !”

“I can’t begin to express my appreciation for the Center for the tutoring provided. My daughter has gained in ability as well as confidence. The Center has been a blessing to our family at a time when we had limited hope. The program has had such an impact on her. She has identified an area of problem for her sister and has even begun helping her! The student is becoming the teacher!”

“The Center has given my son a great advantage and has also been a terrific resource for me as well.”

“This program has been a true blessing for my son. He finally feels confident to read aloud. We had tried other sources at home with not much success.”

“Doing an excellent job and is a God send for my daughter! Thank you! Keep up the great work!”
