I jump at every opportunity to take a Neuhaus class. Each time I have been to a class I leave prepared to initiate the new ideas with my students the following day. I leave prepared AND excited to get started!

Neuhaus Education Center has been the one location we could always turn to get materials, support, training and exchange ideas in support of our work with dyslexic students. They are highly valued and reach people looking for help across the nation. They have touched many lives and helped them to succeed in life. Sandi, Mesa AZ

As a Special Education teacher with Houston ISD, I was given the opportunity to receive training in Alphabetic Phonics. That was 19 years ago. I still use the strategies I learned at Neuhaus to this very day because they work. The skills I learned at Neuhaus have benefitted hundreds of my students. Neuhaus taught me how to teach children to read....what a gift, something no one can ever take away from them. That's why I do what I do.

Having two family members with Dyslexia, long before it was recognized as treatable, I valued my training at Neuhaus because it enabled me to help my students the way I wish my family members could have been helped. I am thankful for all those who have contributed their money and their time to give us the opportunity to obtain the training necessary to help those with Dyslexia.

Neuhaus changed my life! I am the parent of three dyslexic children and came to Neuhaus through their parent seminars. I became so fascinated by these brilliant children that struggled to read and the information that I learned through these seminars, that I went back to school to become a teacher. I attended Neuhaus training my first year as a teacher and haven’t stopped. I am now a Reading Specialist and use the training that I received through Neuhaus every day. My children, my students and I are forever grateful to Neuhaus and their caring, knowledgeable staff.

This is my second year using Neuhaus with my Autistic students. After using the program they are reading, coding, blending, etc. I would recommend this program to any teacher especially ones with struggling readers.

I have been a supporter of the Neuhaus Center since its founding. As the mother and grandmother of dyslecic children I understand the importance of its mission and I belive that it is fullfilling that mission admirably. It not only trains teachers to teach children with learning differences but it raises the awareness of learning differences. Thank you to the Neuhaus Center.

Been involved with Neuhaus for many years first as a board member, then Neuhaus certified teacher, today teaching the program through a community mentoring program. An effective, efficient, and brilliant program with a dedicated staff that never loses sight of their mission.

I sought out Neuhaus as an elementary classroom teacher who did not know how to help students who struggled with reading. Neuhaus gave me those tools. I have since become a dyslexia therapist. I thank Neuhaus , and I'm sure that my students do too.

I am a ELA Skills Specialist and our Dyslexia teacher, and screener. I was trained through Neuhaus several years ago. I have been in education for 29 years, worked in 6 states and taught reading/language arts to all levels from Pre-K - 9th grade. This is one of the best programs I have used to help struggling readers, most especially our dyslexic students.

As a Dyslexia Teacher, Neuhaus serves as a solid resource. Their inservices are invariably first rate. They constantly seek the newest, greatest methods for teaching dyslexics, but never offer anything that hasn't been well tested and proven - a great combination of relying on the basics, and looking for new ways to reach struggling readers.

I am almost 65 years old and have been a staunch believer in the Neuhaus programs since 1986. I had been a teacher for 17 years at the time of my first workshop given by professionals from the Center. I was so intrigued by the information I heard that I began to pursue over a ten year period the training to become a Dyslexia Specialist. I raised 3 children during this time. Now 2 of those children are teachers. I continue as a private tutor now and reap the benefits of using all the tools provided by Neuhaus Education Center. I also reap the benefits of hearing testimonials from the grown students I once taught. These students are what make me continue my plight in educating not only the dyslexic student but the teachers and parents of these children. When utilizing the curriculums in the manner they were designed to use I have had nothing but success. I encourage anyone reading this to learn more about the curriculums provided by Neuhaus. Their staff of experts not only changed and enhanced my life as a teacher, but as a mother as well. The quality time I spend with each of my dyslexic students is time I hope will encourage them not only to read, spell and write better but to possibly help one more person in their plight to become a better student.

Over the last 15 years as a tutor for students with dyslexia, I have always been able to depend on the materials produced by Neuhaus to provide high quality resources.

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.

Neuhaus has been a great support to me over the years. When my son was in school I would always call them when times were tough. Their advice always helped to dry my tears. The materials they produce are very helpful and practical and I look to them as leaders in the field of literacy

Neuhaus is a wonderful place to learn the art of teaching children or adults to read. They are so patient and they genuinely care that the students learn. I teach Special Education and can only hope that I have half the patience they have. The program is long but it is built one step after the other and does not leave out any steps along the way. The staff are just fantastic and the program is top notch.

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.

I am a teacher that has received training at Neuhuas. The skills that I have developed as a direct result is invaluatble. I have seen tremendous growth and confidence as a result of the systematic, multi-sensory, prescripive instruction my students are now receiving.
