Nonprofit Overview

Mission: To raise awareness and to educate humanity about dyslexia, to empower children and adults to become independent, fluent learners in reading, writing, spelling, handwriting and mathematics, to guide them to discover their individual talents and strengths so they may gain life-long skills and become self-advocates.

Programs: The dyslexia tutoring center of hawaii, inc. (dtch) educates individuals in the realm of dyslexia awareness, dyslexia (difficulty with reading, writing, and spelling), dysgraphia (difficulty with handwriting), dyscalculia (difficulty with mathematics), and dyslexia combined with attention deficit/hyperactive disorder (ad/hd). Our mission is to raise awareness and to educate humanity about dyslexia; to empower children and adults to become independent, fluent learners in reading, writing, spelling, handwriting and mathematics, to guide them to discover their individual talents and strengths so they may gain life-long skills and become self-advocates. We envision a better informed community where children and adults with dyslexia become independent readers and use their new learned skills in school and the workplace. To date, dtch has screened over 275 students who struggle with dyslexia and related disabilities. Provided services twice a week for over 270 students and 40 educational/awareness workshops for educators, parents, and communities. The short-term outcomes of dtch's tutoring program are: students will read with less adult assistance, become willing readers as they improve fluency and accuracy, while gaining confidence in reading and writing. The long-term outcomes of dtch's tutoring program are: students will gain confidence, broaden their vocabulary, experience less anxiety, and will increase a minimum of one reading grade level (rgl) per year.
