Are You Willing to Help Change a Life?
This young man with the beautiful smile is Justin. He graduated from Thomas Nelson College, Summa Cum Laude, last year. That may not seem like a big deal to you, but for Justin it was huge.
During his Valedictorian speech he told his classmates that addressing them would have been unthinkable just a few years back. Justin is one of many adults who has to meet the daily challenges associated with dyslexia. Justin said “dyslexia does not define me but it does require twice as much to succeed in an academic environment.” For him, getting through school was like climbing a mountain and he is grateful for the support he had. Justin is one of the lucky ones…his family was able to afford the private services he needed. Justin said “Although I did not personally utilize SDF’s resources, I can attest to the immense need for the support they offer students with dyslexia.” He says by supporting the foundation in any way, donors can provide students with the help they might not otherwise receive.

This little cutie is Greyson. He’s just 6 ½ years old and mom says “he is struggling significantly to learn to read”. She tells us that school upsets him so much that he constantly asks not to go and that he comes home most days defeated. Unfortunately, Greyson is not alone.
Here at SDF we get calls from parents all the time telling us about their frustration with the school system and their child’s struggles with reading. Fortunately for Greyson, his parents heard about SDF and now he’s working one-on-one with one of our dedicated tutors.
On May 11th, during this year’s Give Local 757 Campaign, you’ll have the opportunity to help kids like Greyson.

Your donation can help a child or adult with Dyslexia learn to read.
Dyslexia affects as much as 20% of our country's population.
Why should you care?
Because every day, someone you know and care about could be struggling to simply get by when they could be working to achieve...with a little help from you, their success is virtually guaranteed.

Grab the tissues! It's a tear jerker!
The Movie titled "Mical" portrays a young boy with dyslexia who is ridiculed by both his teachers and classmates as being stupid.
It's quite a powerful story, but sadly, very true.
Unfortunately, many of our students have had similar experiences.
But thankfully for Mical, his mother never gave up. Kids with dyslexia and their parents
often have to work harder than others, without ever getting the recognition and help they deserve.
Here at SDF we understand what it can be like to live with dyslexia. We want to offer families
in our community the resources and support that this mom never had. Your financial contribution can go a long way in helping kids like Mical succeed!

This month we're featuring SDF Tutor Debbie Nelson. She's been with us since 2016, aren't we lucky? Former students; ME, Jacob, Mackenzie, Michele and Monique sure, think so. Debbie says that she believes if someone can read they can learn whatever they want. Thanks for all you do Debbie, to help our students succeed!

Switching Letters, Skipping Lines: Troubled and Dyslexic Minds

As we continue to take steps to bring new methods of instruction to our up-and-coming teachers about the effects of dyslexia and methods of intervention; we are reminded by an essay, written by a middle school student, as to why this is part of our mission.

As we like to say, out of the mouths of babes:
“After years of intensive interventions including tutors and outside programs, I can finally pick up a book and read it like it’s nothing. This could be the future for many kids but not until teachers are trained properly and appropriate interventions are provided. In the meantime, we all need to remember, “Great minds don’t think alike.” -Hayden Miskinis

This essay, by Hayden Miskinis, is one of the top three winners in the middle school category of our Seventh Annual Student Editorial Contest for which we received 1,242 entries.

Support Sinkinson Dyslexia Foundation in #GiveLocal757! | Give Local 757

By supporting SDF during today's Give Local 757 day of giving you are helping students that struggle with reading. Here's what the parent of our most recent graduates had to say about their experience:

"In my 2 years in the program, I have watched my son go from not wanting to read out loud because he didn't know or couldn't sound out the words. He got with Curtis [his tutor], who has done an outstanding job with my son. Curtis has the patience and willingness to help my son. The program over the years has made my son thrive in school. He went from C, D, E's on his report card to straight A's. His vocabulary knowledge was increased greatly. We practice different reading strategies like reading the closed caption while watching TV. My child has been able to read aloud in class without thinking he's going to make a mistake. He has a ton of courage to speak out. Not only did his math, reading grades sore but so did the rest of his classes, and that's all in thanks to his tutoring and having someone take the time out to train his brain."
