Celebrate Dyslexia Schools

OUR MISSION

Celebrate Dyslexia Schools is on a mission to educate and support children and their families by expanding use of evidence-based dyslexia interventions into historically marginalized communities and by creating an enriching, emotionally safe, culturally appropriate learning environment for all students, particularly those with dyslexia.

 A SCHOOL THAT SERVES ALL STUDENTS WITH DYSLEXIA

Desk with lamp and books

95,583

TEA reports that 4.55% of students in Region 20 were receiving dyslexia services.  20% of students that cross the threshold of school every day have dyslexia, whether identified or not. That means up to 95,583 children in our Region are not getting the services they need to read at grade level

iPad and dollar bill

$20,000

It costs an average of nearly $20,000 a year for families of students with dyslexia to pursue private evaluations, intervention services, and advocacy support to navigate the proper services through traditional school systems.

 

Celebrate Dyslexia Schools applied for approval through the State of Texas Generation 28 Charter School process to offer these supports as a public charter school, tuition free.

Girl in Classroom
I didn’t succeed despite my dyslexia, but because of it. It wasn’t my deficit, but my advantage. Although there are neurological trade-offs that require that I work creatively [and] smarter in reading, writing and speaking, I would never wish to be any other way than my awesome self.”

- Scott Sonnen

OUR VISION

Celebrate Dyslexia Schools will expand access to and become an incubator for best practices in education through the integration of structured literacy, social emotional support systems, technological innovations, and services designed to support the student with dyslexia. By including strategic local, state and national thought leaders, this work will add to the community’s body of knowledge and saturate San Antonio with well trained teachers and students who will go on to become leaders.
