Our Mission

a student learns orton gillingham from a tutor

The Children’s Dyslexia Centers, Inc. is a program of the Scottish Rite Supreme Council for the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction started in 1994. The program has 3 primary objectives:

  • To provide, free of charge, one-on-one multisensory reading and written language tutorial services to children with dyslexia
  • To provide, free of charge, training programs to individuals interested in becoming certified tutors in the Orton-Gillingham method
  • To support research programs in dyslexia that will improve today’s clinical standards and tomorrow’s care

We provide a highly qualified staff specially trained in the treatment of dyslexia. After professional assessment and evaluation of a student’s needs, the staff then provides customized one-on-one instruction using a variety of techniques.

In addition, we provide training for local teachers or volunteers who want to tutor children with dyslexia.
