We believe that a supportive community of people facing similar challenges can break the barrier of isolation. We are here to support you by connecting you with other parents and teachers seeking out the same kind of help for their struggling readers.

What is the “Science of Reading”?

Research provides us with the information we need to gain a deeper understanding of how we learn to read, what skills are involved, how they work together, and which parts of the brain are responsible for reading development.

Helping provide tools teachers & parents need.

Our Story.

My name is Stapleton, and I am 10 years old. I have dyslexia. But the problem is, no one knew for a very long time. I hid it from my parents and teachers. Toward the end of first grade I cried a lot and never wanted to go to school because it was too hard. I didn’t know what was wrong with me and I was scared. All I wanted to do was stay home with my family where I felt safe…

And we are his parents, Laken and Kent Gooch. We spent many long years trying to help our son but saw each next “intervention” we attempted, fall short. We didn’t know what to do, his teachers didn’t know what to do, his school didn’t know what to do, and we felt like we were failing our son. He hated school and started “acting out” at such a young age, all because he wasn’t getting the literacy support he needed in order to learn to read.

Let’s make a dyfference.

We firmly believe every child should be given the best possible chance at learning how to read. Simultaneously, we know parents and even teachers can be under-equipped with how to best identify and serve students who struggle with literacy.

We want to be a part of the solution!

So we created a comprehensive set of guided curriculum modules, based on the Orton-Gillingham method, for parents, teachers, tutors, etc. to use when working with struggling readers.

Here’s what people are saying.

Laken is a star teacher. Her enthusiasm is contagious!

She uses a structured literacy approach that breaks reading and spelling down into small skills involving letters and sounds and then builds on these skills over time. She uses explicit, direct, sequential, systematic, and multi-sensory instruction to teach reading. Laken helps learners at any age and any level learn to read in a relaxed and fun environment.
