Children's Dyslexia Center of Springfield


The Children's Dyslexia Centers is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization. It costs approximately $5,000 to tutor one child for one year. Typically, children require an average of two years of tutoring. Your tax-exempt contribution can be designated to support a specific Children's Learning Center, or a Learning Center where the need is greatest.

Our Children's Dyslexia Center's operating budget is provided by the Children's Dyslexia Centers, Inc. corporate office in Lexington, Massachusetts. In order to help our Center to become self supporting, we request funds for our Center be designated to the Children's Dyslexia Center Endowment Fund.
