The 32º Scottish Rite Masons of New Jersey collaborated with the Center for Dyslexia Studies at Fairleigh Dickinson University to develop a program that brings maximum benefit to the children we serve.

The curriculum used for tutoring children at all Children’s Dyslexia Centers of NJ is based on the Orton-Gillingham approach.

The Orton-Gillingham method uses a sequential, multisensory phonetic approach to teaching language.

Children attend tutoring services after school two days a week. This allows the curriculum to be tailored to each individual child as necessary and progress is made in small, readily quantifiable steps. Instruction provided by the Learning Centers equip children with improved reading skills and the confidence they need to approach learning with eagerness. Children attend 56 sessions in the academic year.

The teachers in training have a Masonic Scholarship and are enrolled in the Graduate School at Fairleigh Dickinson University and are working toward becoming Dyslexia Reading Specialists.

Parents are expected to participate in all Learning Center fundraising activities.
