We Serve People Of All Ages
Dyslexia needs to be correctly identified so that effective remediation can be started. There is no specified treatment for dyslexia, but the person affected can be helped by using defined, evidence-based educational approaches and techniques. We achieve this through assessment and academic therapy.
Individualized, comprehensive plans using defined educational approaches and techniques.
Proven, standardized testing to determine the individual’s needs. We assess from 5 years old, up through adulthood.

A Dyslexia Advocate helps parents with dyslexic children navigate the often frustrating and confusing world of 504 Plans, Individualized Education Plans (IEP’s), and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Parents are often overwhelmed with all the language of an IEP or 504 as well as the various requirements from different school districts. We do as much or as little as you need – from attending IEP meetings to filing a state complaint.
In Academic Therapy, we focus on the following skills:
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.
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:
- Health Savings Account (HSA)
- Empowerment Scholarship Account (ESA)

There are many types of assessments that range anywhere from full psycho-evaluations to screenings. We will work with you to determine the right kind of assessment.
Since there is not a “one size fits all” test for dyslexia, The Dyslexic Group conducts several different standardized evaluations.
The Dyslexic Group assessments can be done as early as 5 years old. Early interventions can make all the difference, although The Dyslexic Group also teaches adults that either were not aware that they had dyslexia or have never received any therapy. We maintain that anyone, at any age can be helped if they have dyslexia.
Yes. We charge for screenings, however, we do not charge for the initial consultation. We encourage you to speak with us to determine if signs of dyslexia are apparent, and if an assessment is recommended.
