Two new tutor scholars at the Children's Dyslexia Center of Steubenville located at 227 N. Fourth St., Steubenville, have completed the first 25 hours of lecture and have begun the required 100 hours of supervised tutoring.
The scholars will work with two children each while attending another 20-25 hours of lecture, completing several book reports, and passing graded observations, quizzes and a final exam to receive internationally accredited certification in the Children's Dyslexia Center's Program of Therapy in Education for Dyslexia.
Children accepted into the Dyslexia Center's program usually reach grade-level reading or complete all five levels of the program in two to two and one-half years. The center's success rate is 100 percent for those children who stay to complete the program, according to a center spokesperson.
Another tutor training class is tentatively scheduled to begin mid-winter. A bachelor's degree is required to apply to the program. Interested individuals can contact the center by phone at (740) 282-4875 or by e-mail to email@example.com.
The center provides multisensory reading and written language tutorial services for children with dyslexia. The service is a Sottish Rite, Masonic and community partnership provided free of charge to families.
