Since 1974, SLD Read has been committed to bringing the power of reading, writing and spelling to all individuals with dyslexia or other unique learning styles, enabling them to achieve their full potential.
SLD Read is a nonprofit community resource serving West Michigan. Their vision is a community working together for literacy that empowers all individuals to achieve their full potential. To reach this vision, they help individuals with dyslexia, learning differences, and other reading challenges to develop lifelong language skills through their multisensory program. They assist educators to identify learning challenges and provide training and techniques to enhance their reading curriculum. They increase community awareness and understanding of literacy issues.
SLD Read was founded on 1:1 specialized instruction based on the Orton-Gillingham approach to reading, writing and spelling which includes multisensory techniques, in particular, utilizing the visual, auditory, kinesthetic and tactile learning pathways.
