The Reading Center saves lives one lesson at a time. The following numbers reflect our impact in 2010:
70 Educational Assessments and 123 Evaluations to identify children and adults’ learning issues and put them on the path to getting the assistance they need.
8,700 lessons taught to 146 students by 49 tutors who developed the reading skills that will make the students successful in school and in life.
51 adults were trained in the Reading Center’s methods that are proven to work with those struggling to read. These include 20 classroom and specialist teachers from the Rochester School District.
106 enrollments in our intensive Best of Basics Summer Program where children engaged their minds every day for a month, in order to reinforce skills they need for success the following school year.
5 Reading Clubs for Pre-school aged children and their parents taught children and their parents the skills they need to be ready to read.
Over 446 adults attended one of our free outreach educational presentations, increasing the number of parents and teachers who understand the signs and symptoms of dyslexia.
$55,000 in scholarships for testing and tutoring were provided to 39 children whose families could not afford the full cost of Testing or Educational Therapy.
