Literacy Nassau is a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit organization that has been assisting individuals with low literacy skills for the past 50 years. Thanks to a one million dollar grant from the John and Janet Kornreich Charitable Foundation, we have developed the infrastructure to bridge the gap between teacher training and student success for children with dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities.
Our private tutoring center is completely donation-based, which sets us apart from other Orton-Gillingham practitioners because it eliminates the financial barrier that creates the cycle of poverty for those who cannot afford access to services like ours. We believe everybody has the right to learn how to read, and money should not be an obstacle.
We provide 1:1, personalized, multisensory instruction for children, delivered by professional educators who are either certified by (or in the process of becoming certified by) the Academy of Orton Gillingham Practitioners and Educators (AOGPE).
All donation-based Orton Gillingham tutoring is done at our tutoring center in Wantagh, New York.
At the request of the school district, we can also provide Orton-Gillingham tutoring services in schools.
