The Children's Dyslexia Center of Rhode Island located in Cranston, RI, opened in April 2001.  The Center, dedicated to the remediation of children with dyslexia, provides the highest quality multisensory reading and written language tutorial services for children with dyslexia.  The Center uses the Orton-Gillingham approach, one of the oldest, most effective research validated approaches to language remediation for individuals with dyslexia.  

The Dyslexia Center also offers a training course to qualified adults who wish to become certified at the Teacher Level of Orton-Gillingham.  Please go to the "For Scholars" listing in the sidebar for details.  Graduate college credit is available for successfully completing this course.  There is no charge for the course but  there is a fee charged by the college for the graduate credit.   A course leading to certification at the Advanced Teacher Level of Orton-Gillingham is also offered.

Partially funded by the Scottish Rite Masons (
www.riscottishrite.org), these services are offered free of charge to the children and their families.  The scholar courses are also offered at no charge.  

The Dyslexia Center is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.  All contributions to the center are tax deductible.

The Center was featured on NBC10 on September 28, 2011,  as part of Education Week.
