This letter was written by a young girl with dyslexia to her tutor – who taught her to overcome her reading disabilities and as you can tell by the letter, went on to love reading. The Reading Center in Rochester was a fascinating stop that enlightened all of us to the complexities of dyslexia and the success stories that come from a specific type of tutoring. #buildMN
An organization that helps 8,700 students struggling with dyslexia is asking for the state’s help in the construction of a new building. The Reading Center, located in Rochester, was started in 1951 and offers a multitude of services for people who are diagnosed with dyslexia.
Dyslexia is frequently difficult to diagnose and effects 15 to 20 percent of the population. The Reading Center is asking for a $1.5 million match from the state to construct a new building to increase the number of teachers and students they serve.
Project leaders say early detection of dyslexia reduces the cost for the government and improves the quality of life with those diagnosed with dyslexia.
