The Children’s Dyslexia Center of East Central Illinois is a Scottish Rite charity. It is housed in the Masonic Center in Danville and serves children from all over Eastern Illinois. Dyslexia is a neurologically-based, often familial disorder, which interferes with the acquisition and processing of language. Varying in degree of severity, it is manifested by difficulties in phonological processing, receptive and expansive language skills, in reading, writing, spelling, handwriting and sometimes in arithmetic.
Since 2008, children have received free specialized instruction at the Danville Center enabling them to overcome the effects of dyslexia. Our Center provides highly qualified staff who are specially trained in the treatment of Dyslexia/Learning Disabilities. After professional assessment and evaluation of the student’s needs, our staff then provides customized one-on-one instruction using a variety of techniques. In addition, our Center provides free training for teachers or volunteers who want to tutor children with Dyslexia.
The Phone Number to the Children’s Dyslexia Center of East Central Illinois is 217-446-9377.
