Dyslexia Tutoring

 

All of our teachers receive expert training and have access to expert resources. No other dyslexia learning center in the Des Moines metro invests in dyslexia training and certification for their tutors like we do.

 

Aspire Academy uses the Wilson Reading System as its Orton-Gillingham method. All of our tutors are trained by the Wilson Academy at their three-day, in-person, 18-hour course, and all tutors then have access to the Wilson Academy web site for training videos and additional support. Reading is a life skill, parents are investing money and time...choose the best.

 

In addition, Heidi Kroner, Executive Director, has completed her Wilson Level 1 Certification, and she is working to complete her Level 2 Certification. She is one of only 12 people in the state with this certification level. Heidi keeps current with continuing education to stay up-to-date on the best methods to help kids with dyslexia.

 

We tutor from 3:00 - 6:30 Monday - Friday.

 

If your child attends a private school, we will consider tutoring at schools during the school day, dependent upon tutor availability and school permission.  We will also consider tutoring in your home before school starts, if their is a trained tutor available and open. A travel charge will be assigned for driving to your school or home.

When a child with dyslexia begins learning to read, they begin using areas on the right side of the brain. Dyslexia therapy will teach them to use the more efficient left-side of the brain when reading.

Customer Comments

" I could write a book about the problems we had regarding our son and his learning disability. He was finally diagnosed at UW Madison. We sent him to a special reading camp in Northern Wisconsin for two summers which used the Orton Gillingham method only to have his regular teachers ignore everything he learned so he would back slide. I had a boss who trained pilots during the war who told me that when schools stopped teaching phonics you could see these kids coming out of the woodwork. But no one wants to listen. Yes, we can cut back on our education budgets and use that money to build more prisons because that is where a lot of our young people with disabilities will end up. God bless you for having a program to help these young people. Thank you."
