How schools approach dyslexia is a national crisis in public education. ThinkLexic serves the nearly 15% of the affected population with community-tailored programs, advocacy, and policy to rethink and reframe education for the 8 million K-12 students with dyslexia.
Dyslexia is the most common disability, but it is a hidden disability which must to be revealed.
Students with dyslexia begin to flounder in first grade when reading acquisition typically begins. Many fall 1-3 grade levels behind by the time the curriculum shifts from learning to read to reading to learn. Dyslexic children frequently go unidentified, remediated and unaccommodated in schools.
What's our solution?
We can help schools replace ineffective teaching practices with evidence-based interventions and methods derived from our workshops and resources.
We’re committed to developing leaders through our arts and tech program for students with dyslexia. It recognizes their natural strengths in visual, creative thinking and this program is dedicated to celebrating multiple forms of intelligence.
We're helping advance laws to improve education for dyslexic students in our home base of California and throughout the nation.
