Illuminations Center for Dyslexia was founded on the belief that every student has the ability to learn.
The mission of Illuminations Center for Dyslexia is to maximize the potential of children with language-based learning differences using highly individualized, multi-sensory, research-based instruction; empowering students to utilize their strengths to think, imagine, and create in a stimulating and supportive environment that cultivates intellectual, social, and emotional growth.
According the International Dyslexia Association, qualified education professionals should have training in specific instructional approaches designed for dyslexic students, including certification by a training course aligned with IDA by an accredited multisensory structured language program, with documentation of levels of training and references. At Illuminations, we are pleased that our program is in complete alignment with IDA standards, and that effective, consistent instruction to master skills is within your reach for your child. Every lesson consists of explicit, systematic dyslexia therapy by a licensed dyslexia therapist.
Our summer program has shown a reading improvement rate of one grade level from May to August on standardized assessments done at an independent school sites for 90% of our students in both the 2013 and 2014 summer semesters. Students who have shown this incredible growth have attended classes consistently for 8 weeks, had a dyslexia diagnosis, and have been struggling in core areas of reading and writing. These students are the core of what we do, but we do offer a spectrum of services to meet your needs. See our services tab for pricing and schedule information.
All Dyslexia Therapy instructors are Orton-Gillingham trained at Mississippi College. All other teachers are licensed to teach by the state of Mississippi.
