Over the years I have attended many teacher workshops and trainings. The instruction given at Neuhaus far surpasses any others. The information is grounded in research and addresses student needs. Moreover, the information and strategies that are presented can be comfortably implemented in the classroom since techniques for doing so are integrated in the programs. Best yet, in implementing the programs, one can see a difference in student learning! I try to take advantage of Neuhaus' workshop offerings each summer.

I traveled to Neuhaus for a week of intensive course work from Halifax, Nova Scotia. I was so impressed by how knowledgeable and prepared my instructors were and how seemlessly they taught. I have since taken on-line courses and continue to use their website for all the valuable information it contains.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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

the knowledge and skills of my teachers and in the amazing results I see in their students.

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

their extensive knowledge and their willingness to help.

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

incredibly dedicated

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

change what is possible for students across Houston.
