Event Details

We at Wishes of Literacy have been making big gains on raising awareness of dyslexia and learning differences.

Our free monthly workshops are a great success. We have had some amazing guest speakers come to help us educate parents, teachers, therapists and the public on dyslexia and learning differences. We have opened many eyes when we speak in schools and educational meetings about the struggles children with dyslexia and learning differenecs go through, and we have even had the honor of sitting on panel discussions with many distinguished dyslexics and advocates for children.

But that is not enough for us!

We have a big goal and little time to accomplish it.

We would like to provide full and partial scholarships for children to attend an intensive summer Orton-Gillingham clinic. This clinic will jump start the children's ability to learn to read and give them tools to take back with them to school next year.

We need your help. We cannot accomplish this goal without fundraising. The cost for one child to attend this six week clinic is $780.00. The more money we raise the more kids we can help, and with any luck this will be such a great success that we can continue to provide scholarships for on-going tutoring throughout the school year!

$5, $10, whatever you feel you can do will help tremendously. Be assured that 100% of the funds raised will go towards this scholarship program. Please give what you can and help us help these children to read and learn.

 

Sincerely,

Wendy Ramos

Founder & President

Wishes of Literacy Inc.

Wishes of Literacy was formed in 2010 by Wendy Ramos to help children with 
Dyslexia and Learning Disabilities. 
Mrs. Ramos started the organization after her son, Luis, was diagnosed with Dyslexia and Auditory Processing Disorder. She found very few resources or people who could help and knew there had to be other parents and children going through the same thing, so, she decided to make a difference.
 
Since then we have opened our Learning Center for Dyslexic and Struggling Learners.Where we offer Evaluations, Advocacy, One to One Orton-Gillingham Tutoring, Orton-Gillingham Training, Professional Development, Workshops and More!
 
Our mission, through our free workshops, professional development and advocacy, is to raise awareness of Dyslexia and Learning Disabilities and to promote understanding, acceptance and services in our schools and 
communities.

 

 

 

WISHES OF LITERACY'S MISSION IS THREEFOLD:

 

  • TO RAISE AWARENESS OF DYSLEXIA AND LEARNING DIFFERENCES.
  • TO EDUCATE PARENTS AND PROFESSIONALS ON DYSLEXIA AND LEARNING DIFFERENCES THROUGH WORKSHOPS, PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND SUPPORT.
  • TO HELP THE CHILDREN BY BRINGING KNOWLEDGE, UNDERSTANDING, SERVICES AND PROGRAMS IN OUR SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITIES.
