Dyslexia Training Program
The Dyslexia Training Program is a multi-sensory program of instruction that emphasizes phonics. It is taught by a teacher/facilitator, who is certified to teach in Louisiana, to classes of limited size using several teaching aids, including workbooks, three-dimensional letters, and other items.
The primary program consists of 336 hours of classroom time and is a two-year program which is conducted five hours  per week, excluding holidays. There is also a 160-hour program for youth older than the age of 12. This one-year program provides instruction for students in the 6th grade through 11th grade and is also conducted five  hours per week.
In order that the students may all be age-appropriate and comply with the elements of the disorder, we accept only those children who are in grades 3 through 5 for the 2-year program, but who have not yet attained the age of 13; and those children who are in grades 6 through 11 for the 1-year program, but who have not yet attained the age of 17; who are free of other impeding conditions; and who have a Full-Scale I.Q. of at least 90 as determined by the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children, 3rd Edition.
The location of each class is in various physical facilities, including Masonic Lodge buildings, churches, schools, or other specified entities.
