My niece is taking her son to one next week. They are going twice a week and I guess it's very expensive. Does anyone have any experience with this type of thing? I just don't want them to get ripped off!

I do dyslexia tutoring. 2 hours a week using an OG system is the bare minimum. Its slow going, but works for most students. I worked with one kid for 3 years. She came to me as a complete non-reader in third grade and was reading on a 5th grade level by the time she left. Her school had her in sped, but the interventions she was getting was doing no good because they didn't address the fact she had no phonemic discrimination. Without being able to hear that words were made of separate sounds, she couldn't understand sound symbol correspondence.

Orton-Gilligham has official trainings.

A fraternal order around here has made dyslexia tutoring their big charitable activity. A couple co-workers get pretty decent money tutoring there after school and on weekends.

If the person is trained in dyslexia therapy, then I think itís a great thing! If he has been without services since March, this will help him.

I am getting ready to do the same for my son, it for speech. He hasnít had services since March and I donít want a regression.

I am certified as a Dyslexia Practitioner 1 . I was trained through the Children's Dyslexia Center. It was a year long training (about 90 hours of course work and 100 hours of supervised practicum).

The average cost to tutor a dyslexic student is about $5k annually.

I also worked for the Children's Dyslexia Center. You absolutely want to be sure the tutor is Orton Gillingham certified and yes, it's very expensive. Up to $100/hour in some places.
