The training I have recieved through Neuhas has changed my life as an educator. I have learned so much for Neuhaus trainings and materials. And my students (all struggling readers) have learned valuable literacy skills. I love teaching Basic Language Skills!

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 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.

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 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.

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.
