Dyslexia – “Recognize It.” A Conference You Must Attend.




A specific learning disability that is neurobiological in origin.  It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities.  Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impeded growth of vocabulary and background knowledge.
- Dr. Sally Shaywitz, M.D., Overcoming Dyslexia: A New and Complete Science-Based Program for Reading Problems At Any Level
Perhaps you have seen the signs in your child:  frustration with school and/or failing grades – particularly in subjects that require large amounts of reading and math.  He or she is embarrassed, withdrawn, perhaps even defeated.  People think he or  is lazy.  Or stupid.

(if you are unable to view this video, please click here.)

Your child is not lazy.  Not stupid.

Fundamental Learning Center is hosting the Dyslexia – “Recognize It” Conference this October to help those in our community, our state, our nation, our world to recognize dyslexia.

To recognize

  • why my child is struggling to read.

  • why my child’s educators do not understand dyslexia.

  • my child’s doctor cannot “treat it.”

The Dyslexia – “Recognize It” Conference will be held on October 5, 2013 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.  It will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel’s Grand Eagle Ballroom.

“All kids reading. All kids succeeding.”

There is a way.

Teachers specialize. Kids make gains.

As a private not-for-profit 501(c)(3) educational resource center located in Wichita, Kansas, Fundamental Learning Centerprovides a continuum of programs and services for Kansas’ children experiencing difficulty in reading, writing and spelling.  We are in compliance with National Institute of Child Health and Development (NICHD) supported longitudinal research and Federal and Kansas educational policy.  The Fundamental Learning Center delivers consulting and educational services to concerned parents as well as private, parochial, and public school systems, regular and special education across the state.

Additionally, Fundamental Learning Center is an International Multisensory Structured Language Education Council (IMSLEC) accredited site.  The Center has intensively prepared hundreds of highly-qualified and specifically trained individuals who provide direct intervention literacy instructional activities with children at-risk for significant reading difficulties across the state of Kansas.

“Why is my child failing to learn to read?” Are you confused, concerned, and frustrated with the lack of answers you receive to this important question? Do you puzzle over the fact that your child is smart, yet not doing well in  school?

No one can expect children to succeed in life without learning to read.

We can help.
