All children reading. All children succeeding.

We serve: 1.) Students that struggle in reading, writing, and spelling. Many of whom have been diagnosed as dyslexic. 2.) Teachers with professional development opportunities so they know how to teach reading, writing, and spelling to children who significantly struggle. and 3.) The parents of children who struggle through evening informational sessions, assessments, and resources for their child.

Direct beneficiaries per year:

By training teachers, we have no way to measure the ripple effect of measuring the exact number of students that are helped each year.

Geographic areas served:

We are currently seeing students that are struggling from all over the state of Kansas, as well as some from Missouri, Arkansas, and Oklahoma.

Programs:

Fundamental Learning Center (FLC) offers proven research-based courses for educators, as well as, parents on “how to teach a child to read”.

Reviews for FUNDAMENTAL LEARNING CENTER INC

Rating: 5 stars  

My daughter began school at the Right Literacy Academy at the Fundamental Learning Center last summer. She has grown in amazing ways. Before she went she could barely read any words at all and was very frustrated and disappointed in herself. Now she can read a lot and has so much self confidence that it is a complete change. She goes to school every day eagerly and excited to learn. The environment at her school is just amazing. The teachers are kind and thoughtful and teach to the kids abilities and talents, in addition to helping them with what they struggle with, which is generally reading, math, spelling and other things that are language- related. Before finding the Fundamental Learning Center, my daughter was constantly frustrated and disappointed and had very low self- esteem. Now she has done a complete 180. She is happy, excited, and loves to learn. She loves math and is good at reading at her level. She has made friends that are peers that understand her struggles and vice versa. It is the very best learning environment possible for my child, & I am ever grateful to have found them. in addition, they also offer free parent classes to educate parents about their child's disorder and how to help and support and advocate for them. They also teach teachers how to teach children with dyslexia, which only improves our city's ability to help these children to learn. They are creating a web of people who are supportive and understand the disability and gift that dyslexia brings to all children and how these children are special and will change the world.

Absolutely amazing. Fundamental knows its stuff and the instructors and staff truly care. I would recommend anyone concerned about their child's school performance, particularly in reading, to bring their child in for an assessment. If you have means to, attend their classes too - you will learn how to help your kid!

Our son attends their school. It's been life changing. His self esteem has improved, he LOVES going to school everyday & loves his teachers and has even learned all of his classmates first names. Watching him learn to write in cursive & watching him discover the world of reading & learn to love it and not fear it... Leaves me speechless. They Change lives at Funsamentl Learning Center & Right Literacy Academy.

FLC provided testing which helped us and our son understand his wonderful strengths and determine areas he may need help with. We can't wait until he starts school at RLA next fall where he can continue to grow in his area of strengths while getting support for areas he needs strengthened.

My daughter is highly intelligent but severely dyslexic. When she was young, her inability to learn how to read when others were easily learning was devastating to her. Several years passed, and dyslexia put her in a box of lost potential she couldn't escape from. Then we found out about Fundamental Learning Center. Through the wonderful, loving, and effective tutors there, she was able to learn to read and enjoy life again. Watching her blossom and burst out of that box of dyslexia was a joy that can't even be put into words. Fundamental Learning Center is the reason my daughter not only succeeds, but exceeds her enormous potential. I can never thank them enough for giving my daughter her life back.

The Fundamental Learning Center has been an amazing resource for our son who is dyslexic and dysgraphic. The progress he has made there in the last 18 months is incredible!! The knowledgable, caring and supportive staff is amazing!! The service and guidance they provide is phenomenal. They have truly altered the course of his life by providing him the instruction he needs and helping him to build a strong sense of self and pride in who he is and how he learns.

I have been affiliated with Fundamental Learning Center since its beginning. I was the Director of Operations for 18 months and am now serving my second term on the Board. FLC has been and continues to be the answer for so many children who are struggling to learn to read, write and spell. Parents who have sought answers to their children's inability to read, are relieved when they finally get help for their children at FLC.

Last year, FLC "upped the ante" to provided much-needed service to struggling readers when it opened "Right Academy", a school for these students. This initiative continues to gain momentum as the school's enrollment tripled this year.

I intend to stay connected to FLC as long as I'm physically and mentally able.

I agreed to come on the Board of Directors of the Fundamental Learning Center, Inc., Wichita, KS in January 2014. I had very little knowledge of the work of the corporation but after learning of their mission, I agreed to a 3 year term on the Board. I was informed that I would need to serve on one committee. After three months, I found myself on four committees, Executive, Finance, Governance, and Facilities Development. I chair the Facilities Development Committee.

During this short period of time, I have found that Jeanine Phillips, Executive Director has an enormous passion to serve the 5-8 year old children that are dyslexic and have a severe problem of reading, writing, and spelling. That passion has been very addictive to her staff as they too are highly committed to serve these young people. The teaching staff also are committed to training teachers, from the public and private schools, to teach young children in their own classrooms.

The majority of the Board of Directors are Mothers or Fathers of dyslexic children. I bring a different prospective to the Board in that I was Vice President for Administration and Finance at Wichita State University for 45 years and Senior Vice President for another 5 years prior to my retirement. Given my 50 years as an administrator I have experienced various degrees of passion for individual performances and I would place the FLC staff at the top of the class for the passion that is shown for their respective assignments. Without reservation, I would request the highest rating possible for this organization.

FCL changes lives. Both of my boys have dyslexia and without FLC’s assistance – well, I’d be up the proverbial creek without a paddle. Thank-you FLC for all that you do.
