Mission: All children reading. All children succeeding.
Results: Fundamental Learning Center receives at least 7 calls a day from parents whose children have difficulty with letters, sounds, and learning to read. Drowning, these children agonize because they can’t read, they can’t comprehend, and they struggle to learn. Our assessor process provides a path for help.
Target demographics: 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”.

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 have been on the board of Fundamental Learning Center for five years now and my passion for teaching children with dyslexia to read continues to grow. My own educational background is both teaching and school psychology. I taught for several years before starting a long career as a school psychologist. I worked both positions within our local public school district where these special children continue to fail in the acquisition of even basic reading skills. The methods of instruction taught to teachers at Fundamental Learning Center are very solid and grounded in research. The survival of this organization is critical. Much work has been done, but much work still lies ahead. These children are our future. We cannot fail them.
