Students with dyslexia will be offered dyslexia help, tutoring, and resources at a new treatment center that has opened in San Clemente, California.
PRIDE Learning Center, an Orton-Gillingham reading clinic for students of all ages struggling with dyslexia and other reading disabilities, will offer specialized 1:1 remediation and support services. The dyslexia program will be the first comprehensive reading and writing center of its kind in San Clemente.
“Our programs have impacted the lives of so many individuals,” says Karina Richland, owner of PRIDE Learning Centers. “So many children come to us as non-readers struggling and frustrated with their dyslexia,” states Richland, “we are able to teach them how to read and help them appreciate and understand that their dyslexia is not necessarily a negative thing.”
The tutors at PRIDE Learning Center are credentialed teachers with Orton-Gillingham certification and strong backgrounds in Special Education. The learning center will also host parent workshops and professional speakers throughout the year.
“We are extremely excited to continue our mission of helping the families in our communities by providing these desperately needed services to the twenty percent of individuals affected by dyslexia,” commented Karina Richland. “Despite massive school reforms in special education, we still have large numbers of children that are not reading at grade level,” reports Richland. “Through our on-site programs as well as our professional workshops and contracts with various school districts, we know that we can make a difference for so many children who struggle with reading and writing.”
The San Clemente dyslexia center officially opened its doors September 17th. The center is located at 665 Camino De Los Mares 204B, in the medical buildings across from the Saddleback Memorial Hospital.
