Willamette Valley Dyslexia Center Announces Launch
Salem, Oregon – Willamette Valley Dyslexia Center (WVDC) is excited to announce its official launch August of this year. Based in Salem, Oregon, WVDC provides tutoring for students with Dyslexia and learning disabilities using a structured literacy program that will help children who are struggling to read.
WVDC also provides a comprehensive screening for Dyslexia and other reading learning disabilities in order to meet the needs of each student as an individual. Our screening process includes testing session for identification of skill deficiency, a written report, goal setting, and a plan timeline. Using a structured literacy approach, WVDC can help struggling readers make gains in understanding written words. These gains will impact their reading functionality and achieve a sustained life-long reading upon completion of the program.
In 2003, the National Center for Education Statistics found that 10% of Oregonians remain below basic literacy standards into adulthood; in Marion County, it is estimated to be closer to 15% of adults. WVDC can work with your local public or private school, district, homeschool, or as a tutoring service to provide early intervention for struggling readers. Contact WVDC (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information on ways to support your children.
