Everyone Reading is truly a gem in Manhattan. It's the go to place for children with dyslexia and other learning disabilites as well as a great resource for parents looking for help to navigate the system . My son has benefitted greatly from tutoring and never complained about going. I would highly recommend Everyone Reading to anyone with learning disablities.

Everyone Reading is a fabulous organization. My daughter would never have gotten into college without it.

I needed help in finding a qualified tutor for my daughter who is dyslexic. Up to then, the only people whom I had been able to find and who she had been given in her schools were well intentioned but not qualified to give her the targeted help she needed. Immediately I was given a number of names in the areas of expertise I specified as well as the regional area I needed with advice on what I should expect them charging and if they were known for working with the age group I needed. With Everyone Reading's help, I found a wonderful tutor who is doing exactly what is necessary to improve my daughter's skills in reading.

encourage them to increase their outreach to schools and parents who do not know about them.

Dyslexia is a disability that often slips between the cracks. In NYC, the DOE doesn't even administer tests that capable of diagnosing it, thus making it difficult to get any services. Legislators, educators and parents need to be aware that many children that could be helped very early on are not getting it & are suffering the consequences. Everyone Reading, however, is a fabulous first stop for anyone who suspects a reading disorder. They can provide you with referrals for psychologists, tutors, attorneys and advocates & regularly host low-cost workshops.

Everyone Reading has truly helped my family, especially my daughter. They provide excellent workshops, where I became a stronger advocate for my daughter. The summer reading program built confidence and increase my little one's reading skills. The annual conferences brought me in touch with a network of education professionals that I might never have access to other wise. And speaking of networking, Everyone Reading connected us with a certified reading tutor who made all the difference for my kid.

The only constructive feedback I have for the organization is to tap into the power and experience of parents and maybe having a mentoring program were older kids help younger ones. I'm sure this will happen as the organization grows and has more resources at hand.

They need a larger space.
