Dr. Maryanne Wolf: "In our work, each happy reader is happy because they have learned the skills necessary to become a fully comprehending reader. It may be tempting to assume each unhappy (struggling) reader is different, but each has been impeded by not having mastered some or many of the same basic skills." Read on for why the teacher-authors of this piece say teachers need to demand more from their prep programs and professional development as to how children learn to read so teachers can better address reading difficulties.

THURS MAY 21st - New dyslexia related film release
"Our Dyslexic Children"

The story:
In 2010, a group of parents in a suburban school district near Columbus, Ohio discovered their children had something in common - they could not read. Together they filed a systemic, group complaint with the Ohio Department of Education and the district was found in violation. Then, they formed a ​partnership with the district and now work shoulder to shoulder to deliver the nationally recognized early literacy program they built together. This film was made to offer a roadmap for parents to advocate on behalf of all children. (see their website for more of their story, ourdyslexicchildren.com)

To watch film:
View the film anytime beginning on Thursday, May 21 at youtu.be/oJ7xa6meD2Q.

Panel discussion:
Please also register for the 8pm EDT panel (see image for panelist):
osu.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN__1XrKoyESj69NdmHg99IGQ

If you would like to submit questions for the panel, please do so by emailing them to OurDyslexicChildren@gmail.com

ATTN NJ Educators: Free Tutoring Services for Children with Dyslexia in South Jersey Locations

The Children’s Dyslexia Centers, funded through the generosity of the Scottish Rite Masons, provide intensive reading instruction to children grades 1 –12, with dyslexia. The children receive one-on-one instruction twice a week after school which allows for the instruction to be tailored to each individual child’s needs. A diagnosis from a Child Study Team or outside qualified examiner documenting a diagnosis of dyslexia or presenting test results reflecting a diagnostic profile of dyslexia is required. The Centers provide reading instruction using the multisensory Orton Gillingham approach, also known as a structured literacy approach, which includes direct, explicit teaching of phonics. The instruction is provided at no cost to families except for a modest registration fee. An admission application and report of the professional evaluation help us determine if our approach would be appropriate for the child.

There are two Children’s Dyslexia Centers in South Jersey – one is located in Burlington and the other in Northfield. If you are interested in referring a child for these services, have parents request a Child Admission Application by calling our Central Office at 201-288-1183 or e-mailing masoniclearningcenters@verizon.net.

The Centers are now accepting applications for Fall 2020. In keeping with State guidelines for sheltering in place, they are currently offering services online through the end of the school year. They hope to provide in-person instruction in the Fall, but will comply with State and Scottish Rite Masons policy on this matter.
