Welcome to Dyslexia On Demand! We are passionate about changing the lives of children with dyslexia, one at a time, through targeted specific therapy specifically designed to impact the needs of their brain wiring most effectively! Dyslexia does not go away as it is a different brain organization, but with appropriate instruction, students may rewire parts of their brain to access the written code and become proficient readers. Dyslexia therapy is pretty amazing stuff!
Unfortunately, we are HYPER aware of the fact that dyslexia therapists are a VERY under-represented profession nationally. Some of our largest and most populated states, such as California and New York, have literally only a handful of therapists residing and working. With such under staffing, the education and knowledge of the impact a systematic, explicit, multisensory dyslexia therapy program, such as Take Flight, also do not exist nationally. Dyslexia On Demand aims to CHANGE this by providing these students access to services through VIRTUAL, one on one therapy with Certified Academic Language Therapists.
Not only is it our mission to provide this therapy to students, the EDUCATION of the existence and availability of both dyslexia therapy programs and Certified Academic Language Therapists (CALT) is a huge platform of ours. Until people know a better, higher caliber options exist in both training and programming, the change needed to the estimated 20% of the dyslexic population won’t come with the force and frequency it needs!
This blog aims to debunk myths, educate, empower, and empathize with parents and students alike. We hope to be one small piece in the puzzle of dyslexia understanding and reform!
