Scottish Rite Dyslexia Center
The Scottish Rite Dyslexia Center opened in 1989. The Center was established to provide dyslexia tutoring for children in grades 2-5. The Scottish Rite Hospital in Dallas developed a videotape program that was used successfully at the Center for the first 12 years.
In 2001, the Center decided to broaden its focus and not only tutor children, but also provide area educators with the training required to become Certified Academic Language Therapists (CALT) through the Academic Language Therapy Association. These individuals have completed rigorous requirements, including passing a national exam. This is an exciting step for Austin and the surrounding area. Because of this new venture, the videotape series was discontinued, and the students accepted at the Center work directly with educators who are seeking Academic Language Therapy certification. Students receive the same high quality instruction that parents and area educators have associated with the Center.
