Who We Are

We are a non-profit creating colorful solutions for Dyslexia, ADD, ADHD through tutoring, educating, advocating, mentoring and building self-esteem using one's individuals strengths.

Our T.E.A.M. has grown since October 2016. And we have successfully created awareness in a big way through our Billboard Campaign and Awareness Art Shows!

Tutoring Services have grown and we have been able to help target their educational needs to see improvements in reading and build their self-esteem. Our families are happy to have specialized services in their area after searching for months an effective method to help their child. We also have some that could not decode anything and now be able to break down each sound! We have others that are becoming master spellers! One just finished her first chapter book because of our specialized tutoring! We have children that could not read, now reading!

Educating Services are now in demand from several organizations after taking our myths pre-test. Here is a list of partnerships and past presentation: "Defining Dyslexia, Creative Solutions" Exceptional Family Member Program, NC Works, Dyslexia Awareness Art Show at the Art Council, Public Library "Learning Differences" , Crafter's Guild "Building Dyslexia into Art", Chamber of commerce member sits on the WAC committee, provide ongoing information to those members on the committee. Presentation to the Literacy Council, NC Works, Coastal Carolina Community-Onslow County Literacy Coalition, Family Day presentation and listed as Resource Guide- Onslow County Partnership for Children. With our pre-test companies are able to see the need for education. Through these presentations we have helped to identified more individuals with dyslexia and in turn they were able to get specialized services so that they can reach their full potential!

Advocating and partnering with Decoding Dyslexia have been helpful to several of our parents. We share have support group to share the most up to date information and working towards legislation to properly address dyslexia and other learning differences. We providing all the stepping stones for parents to get the best education for their students.

Mentoring Services are an important piece in our vision for a solution for more students with learning differences. We refer to it as, “creating our army of Dyslexia Warriors!” This is the idea that we will find more skilled tutors to answer the need of our students with learning differences. We started with one tutor and now we have 5 tutors working towards certification. One tutor stated, “ Remember when I didn’t want to come to Jacksonville, NC because I thought there were no opportunities...I love tutoring!” Our tutors see the value and are fulfilled in learning the specialized method and being able to effectively teacher.
