With the right instructional toolbox you can help children read who struggle with dyslexia.
It's a lifetime calling.
Children with dyslexia account for 1 in 5 of the population around us. After the pandemic school shutdowns fully 70% of Kansas students in fourth grade or older are not capable of reading even at fourth grade level.
The need is overwhelming, but we must start somewhere. We have the right tools.
You have the right drive.
The payback is both personal and financial.
Call if you would or could become one of our expanding network of Certified Academic Language Therapists (CALT) and a Structured Literacy Intervention Specialists.
Call if you are a University student majoring in Education.
Call if you're a parent or grandparent who can invest time with your own child or other children in your immediate area.
Struggling readers are all around us and they need you.
Become a Structured Literacy Intervention Specialist
Friends University and Phillips Fundamental Learning Center (PFLC) have joined forces to effectively prepare teachers to teach those with reading difficulties. Our joint partnership allows teachers pursuing their Master of Education at Friends University to apply their elective hours toward the Dyslexia and Literacy Interventionist Concentration. Specific graduate credit courses are offered through PFLC.
Every school needs a Structured Literacy Intervention Specialist.
