Here's What Other's Have To Say About Us

From our local Arizona clients, and online everywhere.
“The Dyslexic Group has made a huge difference for us this year. We were at a point where I really needed someone else to work with my son and motivate him to put in the extra work to learn to read and spell. Alanna has done a wonderful job of pouring on the praise and encouragement and has boosted his self-esteem, inspiring him to do hard things. She also does an outstanding job of keeping me informed of his progress and adjusting her methods to suit his learning style. He really does enjoy his time with her and it is greatly benefiting him.”
Debra Reimer

"We have been exceptionally fortunate to find Shaun. Our son has struggled to find teachers or tutors that he can relate to and that motivate him, but he has built a strong bond with Shaun. His growth in reading and writing with Shaun has been tremendous and we can say with great enthusiasm that he has impacted our son's academic growth more than anyone else. We can see our son becoming more confident every week. We have been overwhelmed with appreciation and gratitude for Shaun. Our son loves and trusts him."
Adam Rodriguez

"You have changed our lives for the better! 
Since we have been with The Dyslexic Group, we have seen such amazing, positive changes in our son. He is not only surviving school, but he’s also thriving. The attention and dedication that The Dyslexic Group gives to their students is beyond anything I have experienced since my son was diagnosed. Alanna is attentive and genuinely cares about making sure our son has the tools and self-confidence to be the best he can be. We are forever grateful!"

His flexibility, compassion, knowledge and dedication to our son, Francis has accomplished in six months what could not be done in two yrs with other services. The skills provided have given Francis a boost in confidence with reading and math and will positively serve him throughout his life.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What others are asking about us

Get answers to our most common inquiries below.

We do 1-on-1 tutoring to ensure there is full engagement in learning. We are a qualified dynamic male + female team which allows us to provide a comfortable space to ‘click’ with our clients, based on who they feel comfortable learning with.

We utilize the Susan Barton Reading and Spelling System® which is an Orton-Gillingham based program – but not all students are ready to start it immediately. In specific cases if the student is not ready to start the Barton Reading and Spelling System® we will start the student on use the Lindamood-Bell® program called LiPS. This program is designed to help prepare students to enter an Orton-Gillingham based program. Our dyslexia tutors are also certified and trained in the Susan Barton Reading and Spelling System® and the LiPS program.

People with dyslexia often have dysgraphia. Dysgraphia is a learning disability that affects handwriting and fine motor skills. It interferes with spelling, word spacing and general ability to put thoughts onto paper. During our tutoring session we use proven techniques to help students with their dysgraphia. Our tutors are certified and trained in Learning Without Tears® which provides excellent support for students having difficulty with handwriting.

A course which delves into the skills needed for writing using a range of proven methods to help develop organization, planning, and the structure of writing. We observe three specific areas: narrative, information, and opinion/argumentative writing, exploring, and implementing practical strategies to improve their efficiency and effectiveness. Furthermore, students are supported in learning to think critically and creatively to assist in the building of their confidence to construct strong and well-informed writing.

Many students with dyslexia can also struggle with math and math concepts. A dyslexic student may also have difficulty with math facts or memorizing multiplication facts and word problems. Dyslexics can often able to understand and do higher level math quite well but will have trouble explaining how they “got” to the correct answer. Since dyslexia is a processing disorder math does need to be taught using manipulatives that can visually represent and demonstrate math concepts. Math U See is an instructor-guided student centered intervention that allows students to confidently achieve fact mastery.

Our typical structure is two (2) sessions per week at 50 minutes per session. This averages to 8.67 sessions per month.

We offer several options:
