Neuhaus is the most wonderful place. The courses offered through them are enriching for teachers and parents. As a language arts teacher, I attended my first class, multisensory grammar, at Neuhaus and was hooked. I completed my dyslexia training through them and am now a licensed dyslexia therapist. All of the children I have taught in the last fifteen years have benefitted from this training. All teachers should experience the level of caring, concern, support, and education that can be found at Neuhaus. I thank them for being there when there was no place else to go for the help I needed.

For several years we have had our teachers trained in the Neuhaus language enrichment program. It has made a huge success in helping our teachers have better instructional routines and our students read better.

Neuhaus Has been very informative and helpful as far as education children. I could not think of a better program to suggest. Neuhaus goes far to ensure that more than fundamentals are understood, but also the foundation of reading gets relayed to children.

Neuhaus has filled a very important role in the life of my own child and in the lives of many of my students. We have used Neuhaus as a source of current information and question answering on Dyslexia for our own daughter who is now a student in college, receiving outstanding grades. My own students in my classroom have benefitted from my many hours of training to improve reading and spelling for students. I am forever grateful!

As a Reading Specialist, working with students with dyslexia and other reading difficulties, I understand how important research is today's teachers. Teachers must demonstrate the use of best practices in the classroom and should administer educational strategies in their classrooms specific for the students they serve. Neuhaus has provided the research, materials, and strategies to effectively teach students with reading difficulties how to read. Their Basic Language Skills will move a non-reader into an active reader within one year. Students continue to advance toward grade level proficiency while closing the gap with ongoing continued practice and refinement of the basic skills. These skills move students from phonetic readers to fluent readers.

I am a special education teacher that works with struggling 3rd and 4th grade readers that are at least 2 years behind. My students have bennifited greatly from the workshopes offered at Neuhaus. I have incorporated the stratigies I have learned into my daily instruction and have seen accelerated reading growth as a direct result. Their multisensory "direct teach" approach to learning is exactly what my students need.

Several years ago, my son started struggling in reading. Thankfully, the school he attended has a reading specialist who was a Certified Academic Language Therapist who had been trained by Neuhaus. He saw her everyday from kindergarten until fourth grade when we changed school. There is no way he would be reading without her help and her training from Neuhaus! Every language arts teacher needs to be trained at Neuhaus Education Center

A few years ago I was offered the position of being the reading teacher for students with special needs especailly, difficulties in the areas of reading and comprehension. I struggled like any other new teacher. I tried to do books way beyond their reading levels or comprehension and I worked too hard with very little results. I had heard about the Neuhaus training but wondered about how to get involved. At about this time I was given an opportunity by my principal to get trained at Neuhaus. That summer before I went back to teaching reading with no concept I got trained at Neuhaus. I was equipped with information that I needed to get them started, but my thirst for knowledge kept me going back for more. Today I am considerd a reading specialist at my school, and I am the dyslexia contact person. I am enrolled to complete my dyslexia practioner's course and I am scheduled to complete it this year. My students have made tremendous progress due to my training. I can finally teach students how to read, write and spell using multi sensory techniques.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my students performance. Their test results in TAKS as well as Stanford improve every year after they have gone through the Neuhaus way of education

The Neuhaus Education Center has provided me with dyslexia education for teachers. Their training is the best I've received in my 26 + years of teaching. One of the first courses I took was Basic Learning Skills. I remember actually feeling a little angry that I hadn't been taught the research and methods behind scientific reading instruction before now and wondering why all of this wasn't being taught in every teacher's college in the state. The instructors are experienced and knowledgeable and willing to help solve education dilemmas that pop up, long after your coursework ends. I constantly recommend the center to others. This is a nonprofit that will continue to impact children's lives through their teachers for years to come.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my instruction of struggling readers. As a Reading Specialist I see dyslexics, dysgraphics, hyperlexics, and other strugglers daily. I constantly fall back on my Neuhaus training.

Ways to make it better...

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

love for them to be able to provide training to teachers in the schools rather than at the center. Also, for more teacher's colleges to partner with them for scientific reading instruction, whether through TOT sessions or by satellite.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the excellent training in scientific reading.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated, professional, experienced, and terrific models.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Wow! I wish they'd branch out to the teacher's colleges and the local school districts. All reading teachers would benefit from this training.

Ways to make it better...

I had had this training earlier in my career. I hate to remember all the students I could have better helped.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

size, lack of trainers, and parking.

One thing I'd also say is that...

They need to advertise! I didn't even hear about them until five years ago, and I've spent almost my entire teaching career in the Houston area.

The courses offered through Neuhaus are some of the most valuable professional development opportunities available. My teachers are much more effective after attending Neuhaus trainings and I see the evidence of this in student achievement.
