One of the key things we offer is live, online tutoring over the Internet. We are looking forward to buying new computers, online tutoring files, training tutors and expanding this service. We now serve families who are too far away to come in twice a week. This summer, we will even have students located in Germany and Brazil, who will be doing online lessons! This service is key for families who need specialized, Orton-Gillingham based instruction. Highly trained tutors can be difficult to find in many local areas.
We also hope to purchase additional iPads, and other assistive technology devices that will enable our students to access reading and writing at their own level, as we work to improve their skills.
Now, we are in the running for the grand prize award, which will provide us with an additional $20,000 to help students succeed. The opportunities for us to use these monies to develop presentations, video demonstrations, teacher training materials and acquire technology tools to enhance our tutoring are almost endless.
