We focus on the evaluation and treatment of dyslexia in children in Austin and Central Texas by providing dyslexia evaluations and dyslexia instruction. The Scottish Rite Dyslexia Center (SRDC) offers training with a proven research-based, multi-sensory approach for learning the basic language skills of reading, writing, and spelling. The Center also provides seminars, workshops, resources for educators, parental consultation and offers nationally accredited, comprehensive dyslexia therapist and practitioner training to educators.
Since 1989, the SRDC has continuously provided small group dyslexia therapy for students entering 2nd grade through 5th grade. Beginning in September of 2012, SRDC will be charging a tuition and materials fee for small group dyslexia therapy. The tuition and materials fee for the two-year dyslexia therapy at SRDC will be phased in over four years. Families enrolling for September, 2013 will pay $1,000 for the first year and $800 for the second year. The fee will be revisited yearly and will be reduced if other funding becomes available. In the tradition of the Scottish Rite Masons, scholarships are available for qualified families. Click here for an application.
