Points of Light Kansas

A new network of financial support for teachers of struggling readers in Kansas is now available.

Points of Light Financial Assistance is made possible thanks to a significant gift from Koch Family Foundation. 

Applications are now available for educators who would like to help us expand our reach to communities anywhere in Kansas.

Initial training will take place at PFLC.

Points of Light began June 6, 2022 and now has over 25 teaching participants across Kansas.

We currently have committed individuals serving as facilitators in many communities in Kansas with less than 50 thousand population thanks to generous grants from 

The Patterson Family Foundation through The Patterson Teacher Training project.

There has never been a more critical time to get Kansas kids reading! We know 70% of our kids are not reading at a proficient level by fourth grade, according to 2022 NAEP scores. We also know 1 in 5 students are dyslexic. All children with reading struggles benefit from Science of Reading (SoR) instruction. PFLC literacy instructors are specialists when it comes to SoR. 

Therefore, we invite you to help PFLC expand dyslexia training across our great state. We are looking for educators across Kansas who will raise their hand and say, “I’d like to be a Dyslexia Specialist Facilitator for my community.” By doing so, PFLC will provide financial assistance toward the appropriate training at our facility in order to obtain Certification as an Academic Language Therapist (CALT), allowing you to help us change thousands of children’s lives.  

During the educational process, therapists at PFLC will mentor you as you work with educators in your district to identify children in need of assistance, assess those students, provide an appropriate intervention program that works, and build an intervention team in your district.

If you are interested in becoming a PLFC Facilitator, please give us a call

at 316-684-READ (7323) or email Tammy Kofford at
