If your child has been diagnosed with dyslexia and you’re unable to afford the private schooling or tutoring that your child desperately needs, there’s no better place to turn to than the B.C. Learning Centres for Children with Dyslexia.
We are British Columbia’s only free-of-charge, after-school program dedicated to helping students in grades 2-5 remediate their reading and spelling skills to become successful learners. The B.C. Learning Centres for Children with Dyslexia are set up to help students achieve this through:
One-on-one student/tutor relationship that enable tutors to employ multisensory-learning techniques on an individual level;
Diagnostic and prescriptive one-to-one tutoring with a certified OG tutor to address each student’s specific challenges;
Adapted curriculum, enabling students to demonstrate knowledge and talents in alternative ways;
Firm support structure with emphasis on organizational training, which helps students to develop positive study habits;
Multisensory learning approach with emphasis on language development, self-esteem and self-advocacy;
Use of technology that supports learning independence; and
Teaching principles and practices based on over 25 years of frontline experience influenced by the latest research on human intelligence, cognitive development, dyslexia and learning disabilities.
The result is an all-encompassing experience for students, who gain the confidence and tools they need to become successful learners.
