The Valley of Cambridge Learning Center is located in the Valley office
At the close of our
six-week summer session, four of our scholars completed their 145 hour initial
certification materials and became full-fledged tutors. We now have 12 certified
tutors and four scholars.
We were pleased to
receive our Clinical Director's, Dr. David Winter, April visit evaluation and to
find that we are in full compliance with Lexington's policies and
procedures. His visit was a success and very enjoyable for our staff.
Our Fall tutoring sessions began with great gusts coming from hurricane
Ike and we were forced to cancel the very first day!
Luckily, the next day we were able to get back to business as usual.
We currently have 32 children coming through our doors twice each week.
Eleven of those are new students joining us after May graduation.
Our wait list is currently well under ten children.
Thanks to funding from the
Cambridge Kiwanis Foundation, packets of information are being distributed to
area schools. Included is a new
brochure that details the services we provide at the Cambridge Learning Center.
There is also a parent-friendly brochure that discusses the wonderful 32º
Masonic tutoring program along with the ins and outs of dyslexia.
It lists dyslexia characteristics, what a diagnostic evaluation entails,
and how a child qualifies for tutoring at the Learning Center.
Also in the packet is information about multisensory teaching techniques,
and the Orton Gillingham approach that we use at the Learning Center.
At this time 75 packets have been hand delivered to schools within an
hour of the Learning Center. With
the help of the Kiwanis, we are moving to de-mystify dyslexia for area families.
Anyone interested is encouraged to call the Learning Center and ask for this
