Mission: The primary mission of Hope Academy, an independent not-for-profit school, is to assist students with language-based learning disabilities, like dyslexia, realize their educational and social potential through a researched-based, success oriented, multi-sensory approach and environment.
Results: As we enter our fifth year in operation, we look forward to raising funds for assistive technology for our classrooms, a playground and beginning to plan for a new facility/more central location.
Target demographics: Students in grades 1-8 who exhibit difficulty in language acquisition and processing. 20% of the world's population is dyslexic. We are passionate about availing our campus to the many underserved students in our area. A diagnosis of dyslexia is not the "tragedy." The true "tragedy" occurs when that student is deemed "unteachable" or "lazy."
Geographic areas served: East Bay Area, California
Programs: This organization provides special education services for students with dyslexia.
