PROVIDING FREE CONSULTATIONS, RESOURCES, AND DYSLEXIA SCREENINGS
One of the most meaningful services PC READS offers to families is the opportunity to work with one of our family advocates. Completing the short form below is the first step to being put in touch with a PC READS Advocate Team Member who will set up either a phone call consultation or in-person meeting at our office (1700 Park Ave, Suite 2004) to help you determine your “next steps.” After learning more about your student, we will provide you with an action plan to ensure that your child receives the support needed to become a successful student and confident individual.
Assisting families often includes a free dyslexia screening (we utilize the NeuroLearning Dyslexia Screener), reviewing our Professional Resources List, explaining school procedures and services, and reviewing and revising IEP goals and 504 accommodation plans. Our Certified Dyslexia Advocates have assisted over 250 local families and continue to assist many of these families on an ongoing basis.
Providing this personalized assistance requires a depth of knowledge about dyslexia, special education laws, interventions, accommodations and test interpretation. Such advocacy work is invaluable to local families and truly a unique service PC READS offers. Read more about our services in these two handouts:
