Welcome to the Children’s Dyslexia Center – Southern Illinois A Scottish Rite Charity

Dyslexia is estimated to affect over 2 million children in the United States. These children typically have average or above average intelligence. However if their dyslexia causes academic problems, it can lead to emotional and self-esteem issues through out their lives. Since 2002 the Southern Illinois Center has been providing tutoring to children, by highly educated tutors, free of charge. Specialized training in the Orton-Gillingham method, has also been provided free of charge, to individuals with at least a bachelors degree.
