Keys To Reading Canada: has developed a tutoring resource center in Sarnia Ontario, that provides Multi-Sensory Reading Programs to Dyslexic and struggling readers.
What is the tutoring resource center?
A licensed and accredited business that provides professionally trained instruction, and is the first licensed center to offer Touch-Type Read and Spell in Canada.
Programs offered are proven and research-based alternatives used when conventional reading instruction in
school has been unsuccessful. Geared to learners of all ages, students progress at their own pace during an
optimal 2 -3 sessions weekly. Every child struggles in their own unique way, and we tailor each program to
the child needs. Reading instruction is “Orton-Gillingham” based, which means they are considered the “Gold
Standard” of remedial reading programs. They are a systematic, explicit, sequential AND most importantly a
“multi-sensory approach” to learning.
Orton-Gillingham based programs are the only programs eligible to be claimed on personal income tax -under
the medical section of your Canadian Income Tax Form. Only students whose family physician supports the
program in writing (as being a beneficial intervention for the students’ reading struggles), may make a claim,
and is subject to personal income levels.
We believe that any goals can be reached when they are envisioned with confidence and
self esteem. To put it simply, “we get it”. We understand the psychological issues, behavioral fall-out, worry,
personal struggles with self esteem, feeling stupid, lack of motivation and emotional strain that students and
their parents must deal with. We know what it is like to try to search for answers, and spending endless hours
on the internet looking for clues and assistance.
Keys To Reading Tutoring Resource Center, is unique in its’ approach to helping students succeed. Our goal is
to find the key that unlocks a student’s reading potential and help the child break that cycle of failure. Every
child that works with the center is treated with respect, praised, encouraged and all programs are designed to
achieve measurable success. This is the one place where they can find their personal comfort zone and appreciate
their unique learning styles. We take the time to enhance each session with opportunities to be creative
in our approach, to take the fear out of reading and to have fun with language.
