The Neuhaus Center is a gift to the city of Houston and to the community far beyond Texas. I have recommended the Center to countless friends and families who have a child that is struggling in school, especially in their literary development. I have recommended the website to family as far away as Japan. We are parents in need of knowledge and support and Neuhaus gives this freely, often and with such kindness. Whether we are trying to figure out what is going on with our child or looking for answers about the next step in remediation for our dyslexic child, Neuhaus is the place to go.
I had the opportunity to complete the Basic Language Skills class during the 2011-2012 school year and it really had a significant impact on my students' performance in Reading. The students really enjoy the various strategies utilized by the Neuhaus Program. I am a Resource teacher and the majority of my students have been identified as having Dyslexia, which makes it challenging for them to read. However, the Neuhaus Program has allowed the students' to make significant gains in their reading skills. The entire staff at the Neuhaus Education Center are very dedicated and committed to the participants learning how to implement the program the correctly. At the present time, I'm taking the Advanced Basic Language Skills, and I've learned lots and lots of invaluable information on teaching reading.
I first came to the Neuhaus center as a parent searching for help for my dyslexic sons and for 20 years I have gotten much more than help. I've received guidance, compassion, and instruction. I am now a dyslexia specialist licensed by the state of Texas and I always refer my parents to this excellent resource! Judy Plummer CALT, LDS
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.
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 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.
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.
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
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.
