Fundamental Learning Center and superbly trained teachers made all the difference for our son.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

That the community and state would get behind and support them even more. Then more kids could get the help they desperately need.

I don't know where my girls and I would be without the help of the very knowledgeable professionals at FLC! We would be struggling through school, not being very successful and not having any answers. They are always available with good advise and understanding for what is a very emotional issue!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make it more well known.

I grew up in Wichita, but now live overseas and work in an International school. Last year I took a teacher training course and applied all I learned to my three children plus seven others. This summer I came back to Wichita to continue my training and I learned so much!

Because of the training I have received at Fundamental Learning Center, I am the dyslexia expert in the country I live. The classes I have taken at FLC have not only impacted our family, but the way people view this learning difference in our host culture. The gift of helping kids reach their potential keeps on giving. Thank you for touching countless lives!

Our family of 6 has lived overseas for 15 years. Being a native Kansan, we return occasionally for family visits and even a semester of American school. Three of my four children were not "natural readers", but I had attributed it to growing up surrounded by a different alphabet and language. The problem however, did not go away and I was determined to get to the bottom of their issues while we were Stateside. I kept hearing about the Fundamental Learning Center and finally stopped by one day to see for myself what all the talk was about. After a twenty minute chat, I learned that the Center assessed, held classes and trained parents and teachers to help children with reading and related problems. This was the start of a journey for our entire family. My children enrolled in summer school the summer before we moved back overseas and I took a training course to help my kids on my own. Upon our return, I was offered a job at the International school where my children attend. After working a year, I realized how much more I needed to learn, so I flew back to Kansas for more training! I have wished many times that I could bring the staff of FLC over here. The people of Kansas and surrounding States have an incredible resource available to them!

Unbelievable how much my daughter is finally blossoming! Before Fundamental Learning Center she was shutting down at school and NEVER wanted to go. Her teachers at school are already seeing a positive difference in her! She doesn't seem so frustrated! Thank you so much to Fundamental Learning Center!!!!!!!!

My daughter is dyslexia and couldn't read before attending the FLC and now she can read.
This is a great place for children needing help with reading or math.

I wish I could put into words what the Fundamental learning center has done for my 3 sons, all of which have dyslexia and all have been through the Fundamental learning center. They can all read now and are doing fine in school thanks to the Fundamental learning center, but it did not stop there. We had alot of battles with usd 259 and the fundamental learning center was there with us every step of the way. I can tell you that I know my sons would not have made it this far without the help of the Fundamental learning center, report cards with A's all the time. Because the fundamental learning center taught my sons to read when the schools failed to. Thank you Fundamental learning center Thank you

My daughter was struggling to read, fortunately for her the teacher had taken classes at FLC and knew the programs there could help her. We were connected with a tutor and the changes have been amazing! The informational programs give parents the tools to advocate for their children.

I teach special education and struggled to find a proglearned about FLram to help my struggling readers. When I learned about FLC, I enrolled in their alphabetic phonics class. I was welcomed by the most loving and caring instructors. Over the years, I have experienced this caring over and over. They are truley an amazing bunch of folks who do great things for the struggling readers of Wichita.

For over 2 years my 9 year old son struggled to learn to read. Always a confident student and person, we began to see his self confidence decline. Several times I asked his classroom teachers and school administrators if he should be tested. Each time I was told no. However, shortly after he started 3rd grade we were told by his teacher that he was reading below 1st grade level and the school was at a "dead end" in knowing how to work with him. By chance I stumbled onto the Fundamental Learning Center and my son has been diagnosed with dyslexia. Through Alphabetic Phonics intervention tutoring he's now learning the skills needed to become a better reader. His stress and frustration levels have been greatly reduced and his self confidence is being rebuilt. The staff at FLC are extremely knowledgeable and supportive.

My daughter has severe dyslexia, and if it hadn't been for the wonderful teachers trained at Fundamental Learning Center, she would not be reading. The public schools in our city refuse to use the research-based curriculum needed to teach a dyslexic to read. If I had not found Fundamental, I'm not sure what would have happened to her. However, with the right help, she is a successful young woman who recently completed her Associate Degree with a 3.6 gpa! Thank you Fundamental!!
