Our Method

DCC Leaf Logo

It all started with a goal.

“We want to help children overcome dyslexia.”

The Children’s Dyslexia Centers follow an Orton-Gillingham based, multisensory structured language education (MSLE) approach. Lessons incorporate techniques that simultaneously activate sensory pathways to help children understand the written word. Children are tutored one-on-one twice a week after regular school hours. This allows for the curriculum to be tailored to each individual child and progress is made in small, quantifiable steps.
