2020 Everyone Reading
Annual Conference

Upcoming Workshops

Everyone Reading provides professional development for educators in evidence-based approaches to direct instruction. We offer schools and teachers coaching, workshops and consultations in multisensory education to help students with dyslexia and related learning difficulties read, write and spell with competence.

After School Program

The Everyone Reading After-School Tutoring Program will take place once a week, on Tuesdays from October 2019 through May 2020, following the New York City Department of Education calendar. There will be two 45-minute sessions: Group 1 from 3:30 to 4:15; Group 2 from 4:30 to 5:15. Students will receive 45 minutes of explicit instruction. Children must be born in 2011.

Summer Tutoring

The Everyone Reading Summer Tutoring Program applications will be available on March 15. Please view our newsletters and data from 2019 to get an idea of the program.

Adult Support Group

The Everyone Reading support group provides adults with dyslexia an opportunity to share experiences, successes, challenges and learning strategies. The group takes place on the second Tuesday of each month. 

Information & Referral Hotline

Our Information & Referral hotline provides a link between people who need services and those who can assist them. We answer your questions about dyslexia and related learning disabilities, along with referrals to professionals.
