The Children’s Dyslexia Centers

Millions of school children with dyslexia endure frustration on a daily basis as they struggle to acquire skills that many of us take for granted. For over ten years, the Scottish Rite Masons, Northern Jurisdiction, have been national leaders in the effort to help children and their families overcome the obstacles of dyslexia. With over 40 active Children’s Dyslexia Centers in 13 states, the Centers tackle the challenge of dyslexia head-on, both by providing free one-on-one tutoring for children with dyslexia and by training a growing body of highly skilled and dedicated tutors.

Scottish Rite Freemasonry

The Children’s Dyslexia Centers is a charity of Scottish Rite, Northern Masonic Jurisdiction Freemasonry. Scottish Rite Freemasonry is an organization of men dedicated to improving themselves and their communities.

Since 1994, members and supporters of Scottish Rite, NMJ have served the Children’s Dyslexia Centers as board members, directors, tutors, donors, fundraisers, and much more. Without the support of this dedicated group, the Children’s Dyslexia Centers would not have been able to serve so many children for so long.
