Sept. 5, 2012 - PRLog -- ABINGTON, Pa. – September 5, 2012 – Just in time for back to school, Center School will hold an informative workshop about Dyslexia.

“We would like to invite students, parents, educators, family and friends to attend this very important workshop on Dyslexia,” said Center School Director Allison Enslein. “Guests will also learn how Center School transforms lives.”

For more than 24 years, Center School has been creating educational opportunities for students with learning disabilities. Statistically, students at the Center School have been able to overcome their disabilities and improve their reading skills an average 1.3 levels each year. More importantly, 90 percent of the students attending Center School are able to successfully earn advanced college and university degrees.

“They learn to read and write with confidence and have a strong treasure trove of learning strategies to utilize,” Enslein said. “Plus, our students understand their learning differences and know how to advocate for themselves.”  

One of the keys to success is that a fundamental belief of Center School is to center on each child’s success. That starts with an individualized student learning plan that assists every student in learning self-awareness; learning strategies; how to be proactive; organization and study skills; and self-advocacy.

“Center School teachers are dedicated to making sure that each child who comes to us experiences success and improved self-esteem,” Enslein said. “As educators, they understand that they haven’t done their jobs well unless their students feel good about themselves emotionally and confident in their abilities both academically and socially.”

One learning disability they focus on is Dyslexia and the event on October 25 will show parents and students that there are better options than special education classes in the typical public school.

In fact, Center School is committed to helping their families, along with the community at large, understand their children both emotionally and educationally. They do this by offering workshops and professional people in the field of learning differences to come and speak many times during the school year.

“We are proud to bring this awareness to the community and look forward to a great event on October 25,” Enslein said.
