Tutoring for Children with Dyslexia

Student therapy is the cornerstone of our work. We use an evidence-based dyslexia curriculum, “Take Flight,” which teaches dyslexic students in the way their brain processes information.

We tutor students at the Dyslexia Center, in the students’ school (with school approval), or online. Tutoring requires three 55 minute sessions per week, and our fee is $40 per lesson.

More on “Take Flight”

The “Take Flight” program is a comprehensive intervention for Students with Dyslexia. This program is a two-year *Orton-Gillingham based curriculum written by the staff of the Luke Waites Center for Dyslexia and Learning Disorders at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children (TSRHC).

It is direct and systematic instruction and teaches reading and spelling with a strong emphasis on phonemic awareness and alphabetic code knowledge.

The multisensory lessons target five instructional components:

Phonemic awareness




Reading comprehension

A consistent daily lesson plan cycle introduces new concepts and opportunities to practice skills in:

Alphabet knowledge




Listening and reading comprehension

Dyslexia Tutoring That Is Backed By Research

A comparison-group study published in a 1998 edition of the Journal of Learning Disabilities supports the effectiveness of the Dyslexia Training Program.

This study met the rigorous criteria for inclusion in the meta-analysis of the National Reading Panel, whose report was the basis for the No Child Left Behind Act. Based on extensive clinical research by top clinicians and educators, the use of the program continues to grow throughout Texas, the nation, and the world.

*The Orton-Gillingham Approach is a direct, explicit, multisensory, structured, sequential, diagnostic, and prescriptive way to teach literacy when reading, writing, and spelling does not come easily to individuals, such as those with dyslexia.
