Dyslexia Center Collecting Dimes
The Children’s Dyslexia Center is having its first annual “Dimes for Dyslexia” fundraiser through Dec. 24 at the Nittany Mall, 2901 E. College Ave.
A 1937 Ford pick-up truck will be stationed in the mall to receive monetary donations to benefit the Center. There will also be a table in the mall near Sears with additional information about the Center.
The Children’s Dyslexia Center, located at 2766 West College Ave., Suite 2, removes economic barriers by offering its service free of charge to children up to the age of 18 on a first-come basis regardless of economic, ethnic or religious background.
It accomplishes this through an after-school program administered by professionals certified in the Orton-Gillingham (OG) treatment method. Teachers and other college graduates can also be trained and work as dyslexia tutors at the Center free of charge.
The Center currently is authorized to provide services to individuals residing in fifteen counties in Central Pennsylvania.
For more information about the Center and the services available, please contact Marsha Landis, Clinical Director, at (814) 234-2105 or you can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
