Dyslexia Summer Camp to be held in Yorba Linda

Dyslexia Summer Camp to be held in Yorba Linda



PRIDE Learning Center, a dyslexia tutoring company, will be expanding its services to the Yorba Linda community this summer for the second year. This reading camp is aimed at students from 4-18 years old who have specific learning disabilities with reading, writing and comprehension. Students will attend sessions from 9:00am – 12:00pm Monday through Friday or from 12:30 – 3:30 Monday – Friday.


The dyslexia summer camp at PRIDE Learning Center includes one-on-one tutoring using the Orton-Gillingham approach with reading, writing and comprehension lessons. One of the most highly effective methods for teaching students with Dyslexia is the Orton-Gillingham approach. It teaches the structure of the language using various multisensory techniques that encourage students to see, hear and write a concept at the same time.


“We often see our campers making one to two years worth of progress during our 4-6 week summer camps,” says PRIDE Learning Center’s Director Karina Richland. “The Orton-Gillingham program is like a life-saver for dyslexic kids. Many of them have tried so many different programs and this is finally the one that works for them,” says Richland.


PRIDE Learning Center’s summer dyslexia camp will be held at 19045 Yorba Linda Blvd in Yorba Linda. There is limited space available and early registration is recommended. For more information visit the PRIDE Learning Center website at www.pridelearningcenter.com or call 866-774-3342.

How to Keep those Reading Skills SHARP this Summer

How to Keep those Reading Skills SHARP this Summer


Summer break is finally here!  Although our kids deserve a vacation from the daily   homework load – we don’t want to completely let their reading skills slip during this summer vacation.   Here is a very family-friendly list of activities you can try at home this summer with your kids to keep the reading skills sharp and active in those kiddies:



  • Cook with your kids.  Cooking is a great way for the family to spend fun and educational time together.  Reading food labels and recipes can help your children improve their reading skills and learn the meanings of unfamiliar words.  You can also work up an appetite by reading a story about food.  Then make and eat the food you read about. 


  • Listen to audio books in the car while traveling.  Spending time listening to books strengthens listening, concentration and imagination skills in children.  It also gives them an opportunity to improve vocabulary and language skills.  Take your child’s iPod along on car trips or while you are running errands during the summer break. 


  • Take your child grocery shopping.  Let your child carry the shopping list as you shop.  They can read off the items you need.  Label reading is also a great reading task for a child.  You can have them look up the ingredients on the labels or ask them to research which breakfast cereal has the least amount of sugar in it.


  • Play board games.  Here is your opportunity to expand your child’s mind while also having fun and spending time together.  Games like Scrabble, Boggle and other word games are great for challenging the minds of kids.  Some games require reading for clues or reading directions. 


  • Read about your vacation destination before you go.  Have your child read about your travel spots ahead of time and help plan the trip for you.  If you go camping, explore the wildlife and scenery on-line.


  • Pick your favorite author.  Try to read all the books by a favorite author and list them on a chart.  Then write a letter to the author.  Most authors have their own websites with contact information, book titles, games and more.


  • Visit a museum or zoo.  There will be lots and lots of signs and descriptions to read which will encourage non-fiction reading vocabulary.


  • Go to the library.  Access all those wonderful library resources, including reading incentive programs and opportunities for volunteer work for older children.


  • Plant a vegetable garden.  Read books together about gardening.  Read directions to plant seeds.  Children can research online for growing tips and learning how to take care of their vegetables. 


  • Campfire Stories.  Set up a tent in the backyard and have your children take turns reading campfire stories.  Pick out some fun scary mysteries and don’t forget the s’mores.


  • Don’t watch TV – read it!  If it is available, have your child watch close captioned TV with the sound off.  Not only builds reading skills but also builds empathy for those who are hearing impaired. 


  • Keep a summer scrapbook.  Tape in souvenirs of your family’s summer activities such as pictures, ticket stubs, photos, etc.  The kids can write captions and read them aloud as you look at the book together.
