15-20% of population suffers from dyslexia or another language-based learning disability. This means that one in five people right here in Baltimore struggle to read. There's always a need for more volunteer tutors.
The mission statement of Dyslexia Tutoring Program is to work with low-income children and adults who are dyslexic or have a language–based learning disability. This is accomplished through a professional assessment, and if needed, tutoring by volunteer tutors whom we have trained in researched-based multi-sensory skills using the tenets of Orton-Gillingham, a method of teaching reading, writing, and spelling through supplemental programs proven to be the most effective.
Please note: Due to the effects of Covid-19, all tutoring is being done virtually.
