We Know Dyslexia, Because We Live Dyslexia.

As a mother and son team, Alanna and Shaun approach dyslexia from unique standpoints. Along with being top-notch tutors, Alanna knows the challenges of dyslexia from a parent’s perspective and Shaun from a child’s perspective. Their combined experiences offer a whole new level of insight into the tutoring process.

Alanna has a formal education as a Speech Pathologist.

Shaun is an Advanced Certified Barton Tutor who is a dyslexic and completed the Barton 10 step program himself.

Our Methods Produce Real Results.

“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.”

"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."

"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!"

“Shaun is a true master of his craft. It's a rare thing to find a coach, teacher and mentor of such quality. 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.”
