Millions of school children with dyslexia endure frustration and demoralization on a daily basis as they struggle to acquire skills that many of us take for granted.
For over twenty years, the Scottish Rite Masons, Northern Jurisdiction, have been national leaders in the effort to help children and their families overcome the painful obstacles of dyslexia.
Located in the Madison Masonic Center, 301 Wisconsin Avenue, Madison, is one of the 43 Children's Dyslexia Centers sponsored by Scottish Rite Masons. At this center in Madison, dyslexia is challenged head on with free tutoring provided by a growing cadre of highly skilled and dedicated tutors.
The Walk for Dyslexia-Madison raises funds to support Madison's dyslexia center and the work it does.
Since 1994 when the first centers opened, over 5,000 children have been tutored at the Children's Dyslexia Centers and more than 750 tutors have received certification to carry out this important work. We are heartened by the fact that we have witnessed, both anecdotally and statistically, the positive effects that such tutoring has on the lives of dyslexic children, their families and their communities.
