Our son attends their school. It's been life changing. His self esteem has improved, he LOVES going to school everyday & loves his teachers and has even learned all of his classmates first names. Watching him learn to write in cursive & watching him discover the world of reading & learn to love it and not fear it... Leaves me speechless. They Change lives at Funsamentl Learning Center & Right Literacy Academy.

FLC provided testing which helped us and our son understand his wonderful strengths and determine areas he may need help with. We can't wait until he starts school at RLA next fall where he can continue to grow in his area of strengths while getting support for areas he needs strengthened.

The Fundamental Learning Center has been an amazing resource for our son who is dyslexic and dysgraphic. The progress he has made there in the last 18 months is incredible!! The knowledgable, caring and supportive staff is amazing!! The service and guidance they provide is phenomenal. They have truly altered the course of his life by providing him the instruction he needs and helping him to build a strong sense of self and pride in who he is and how he learns.

FCL changes lives. Both of my boys have dyslexia and without FLC’s assistance – well, I’d be up the proverbial creek without a paddle. Thank-you FLC for all that you do.

The FLC is such an amazing resource for those who struggle with reading. They offer a wide variety of help and the staff goes to great lengths and self sacrifice out of their compassion for people. FLC helped define the problems my son was having and offered several different options to get him the assistance he needed. I opted to do the training to help him myself and have found the classes to be engaging and the program to be exactly what he needed. I have been impressed with how hard all the staff works for the benefit of the people they serve.

They are so fabulous (as are all their former and current employees), I still commute between Wichita and San Diego. Words cannot express our gratitude!

My daughter has had trouble in a "traditional" school since Kindergarten. We signed her up for the Right Lab Academy school this summer, and we saw a dramatic difference in her attitude toward school immediately. "It is FUN!" she would say when I would pick her up each day. She is involved in multi-sensory learning all day--which means that she is not sitting at a desk doing worksheets, but moving about and learning with all of her senses. She has had a lot of trouble learning to read, which is why we signed her up, but I feel that the total experience of the school is going to be much more suited to her learning style. We have only had six weeks or so of experience so far, but I am excited to see where the rest of the school year goes and how much she begins to learn and grow with her "peers", of which she sees as her equals. She no longer fears learning or being made fun of because she does not "understand". The other children are learning just like her, and it is difficult for all of them. This makes it a better experience for each of them, as they can grow together in a safe learning place where they are nourished and not put down.

I had my daughter evaluated in June, It's Aug. and I have yet to receive her evaluation. I also called and left a message inquiring and have never heard back. I think this is out of the norm because I've heard positive feedback from other parents.

We found out last fall that two of our grandchildren have dyslexia, and my daughter and son-in-law immediately wanted to get them the tutoring they needed. It was decided that I would go get the training to become their tutor. I began the process by taking Reading Readiness at the Fundamental Learning Center last fall. The boys have already made progress, and I'm now very excited to use the further training I got this late winter to begin tutoring them using Alphabetic Phonics. Implementing this multi-sensory approach to learning to read, in a systemic, precept upon precept manner is both a fun and successful way to learn to read. The Fundamental Learning Center is making a big difference in children's lives, both in their present and their future. I feel privileged to be a part of this process in my grandsons' lives, and whomever else I may tutor in the future. Thank you, Fundamental Learning Center; the teachers there are great, helpful, and very encouraging to all.

The information that I learned at the Fundamental Learning Center has given me a new direction! I have been involved in education for 20 years and have never felt as if I was adequately prepared to teach students to read. With the training I received at the Fundamental Learning Center I will now be able to help all of the students I teach become successful readers. This training should be mandatory for all educators at every level, I wish it hadn't taken me so long to find this organization.

I have been in education for 27 years now. I have attended many conferences, trainings and classes. I have to say this was by far, the most informative, organized, and well taught class I have ever attended. To have this information taught to every educator would be so beneficial for all of our students, not just those with dyslexia. Our instructors are experts in their field and delivered the information in an understandable fashion. Well done Fundamental Learning Center!

The thrill of watching children being able to actually process what they are reading is such a joy. Education is so important for a person to be healthy. Self esteem and self worth are all a part of being educated. This is so important for everyone in the family. thank you

I don't know where my girls and I would be without the help of the very knowledgeable professionals at FLC! We would be struggling through school, not being very successful and not having any answers. They are always available with good advise and understanding for what is a very emotional issue!

Unbelievable how much my daughter is finally blossoming! Before Fundamental Learning Center she was shutting down at school and NEVER wanted to go. Her teachers at school are already seeing a positive difference in her! She doesn't seem so frustrated! Thank you so much to Fundamental Learning Center!!!!!!!!

I wish I could put into words what the Fundamental learning center has done for my 3 sons, all of which have dyslexia and all have been through the Fundamental learning center. They can all read now and are doing fine in school thanks to the Fundamental learning center, but it did not stop there. We had alot of battles with usd 259 and the fundamental learning center was there with us every step of the way. I can tell you that I know my sons would not have made it this far without the help of the Fundamental learning center, report cards with A's all the time. Because the fundamental learning center taught my sons to read when the schools failed to. Thank you Fundamental learning center Thank you

My daughter was struggling to read, fortunately for her the teacher had taken classes at FLC and knew the programs there could help her. We were connected with a tutor and the changes have been amazing! The informational programs give parents the tools to advocate for their children.

I teach special education and struggled to find a proglearned about FLram to help my struggling readers. When I learned about FLC, I enrolled in their alphabetic phonics class. I was welcomed by the most loving and caring instructors. Over the years, I have experienced this caring over and over. They are truley an amazing bunch of folks who do great things for the struggling readers of Wichita.
