Welcome To My World: October 2020

Linda Martin, Director

As I write this, we are at the end of Day One back at the Center tutoring children. We are thrilled to say that all has gone smoothly thus far. The children were given a run-through on the hand washing- changing into clear masks routine that is done after they have entered the Center with a completed Covid 19 form to which we add their current temperature. Then we follow the one-way path to the tutoring rooms where the child and tutor (wearing their fitted clear masks) work on either side of a 5 ft table with a 3-foot-high clear shield in between them…

Success Stories: Life After the Center

Joseph Mittiga, Former Student

Hello, my name is Joseph Mittiga.  I would like to speak to you about my life after attending The Childrens Dyslexia Center.

At this point, I don’t really remember what life was like before I attended the Children’s Dyslexia Center.  I feel like I caught up with everyone else, and now I’m capable of attending a grammar and writing program that is intense.  It is not easy, but I persevere.  I would never have been able to attend my grammar and writing class, if it had not been for the Center, because I wouldn’t have been able to keep up with the amount of reading, and writing required…
