Volunteer notes

February 07, 2010

Dyslexia Tutoring trains volunteers to tutor low-income children and adults with dyslexia and other language-based disorders. Volunteers should have a high school diploma, good language skills, patience and a willingness to understand those with language disabilities.

Tutors are trained through a 20-hour course in the Orton-Gillingham method of teaching, reading, spelling and writing. Interested volunteers will also undergo a background check and must commit to 60 hours of tutoring. For more information, call 410-889-5487 or go to dyslexiatutoringprogram.org.
