If your child has dyslexia, Orton-Gillingham based tutoring is the fastest way to help them achieve grade-level reading and spelling. The International Dyslexia Association and The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends 200 hours of Orton-Gillingham tutoring, at a minimum of two-hours per week, for students with dyslexia.
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 5 people in the state of Iowa 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 7 AM - 7 PM Monday - Friday.
We tutor at our Urbandale location, in private schools and at student homes. We are able to tutor at homes and at schools if the logistics work for our tutors, the school and the family involved.
