Dyslexia Therapy in East Mississippi and West Alabama

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.

Students who show the most growth in our program have attended classes consistently, 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.
