“Some of our work within The Schenck School is to really recognize the dyslexic student as a person of value. These students are smart. They are trying very hard. They have one particular thing that is a challenge for them and at this school, we happen to know how to help them with that. With the students we work with through ReadSource, they may not be struggling with dyslexia but they’re struggling to read for any number of reasons. Our team is really built to help make them feel seen, to help fill that gap. In a lot of cases, they just missed some instruction. Maybe they have struggled with some of those building blocks and we can help build that back in for them. That helps to build confidence.” – Brooke Kamke, ReadSource Managing Director
