Teach My Kid to Read’s (TMKTR) mission is to support solutions so that more teachers are trained to teach kids with dyslexia and reading issues the way they need to learn. We focus on challenges upstream in higher education where many educators are not trained to teach future teachers about dyslexia and the science-backed solutions. Through fundraising, we will support existing accredited programs struggling to maintain enough resources (staff) to sustain an accredited program. Other work in higher education will include creating student impact before in-service and graduation. The expected outcome is that more teachers will graduate with the tools to identify or teach kids with dyslexia and reading issues how to read.
In order to create awareness and support advocacy, Teach My Kid to Read creates innovative content about reading issues and learning differences. Our content is methodically organized into broad categories each with specific goals. For example, the goal of “Our Stories-We are Here,” is to aggregate and personalize the challenges that families who have with kids with reading differences face within the educational system. These stories can be used for advocacy and to support more state bills for dyslexia. You can read more about the content categories here.
