Review for Rhode Island Tutorial & Educational Services (RITES), Pawtucket, RI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My son is ten years old and has ADHD and dyslexia. He has always struggled in school. We have been trying to get him the services he needs in school but have been unsuccessful. It has been since first grade that we have been trying. He is now in the fourth grade. In February of 2018 we met with Lisa from RITES. We were connected with an Orton Gillingham tutor and an educational advocate. Both have helped tremendously. After only three months of tutoring my son has advanced one grade level in reading. The best part is that he loves his tutor and skips in and out of his sessions. He even seems happier overall. The advocate has successfully gotten us what we needed in his IEP. There is still more work to do but so far so good. In one meeting with the school and the RITES advocate we were able to identify what was missing in the IEP and have appropriate goals and accommodations added. Previous meeting meetings were filled with long discussions that never resulted in much change. We are so happy we found RITES!
