who we are

In 1994, Scottish Rite Freemasons launched the Children’s Dyslexia Centers to teach reading to children with dyslexia. No other national charity has adopted this critical need as a major concern. Although studies revealed the existence of remarkably effective programs for treating dyslexia, no one was addressing the issue and its cost to individuals and society in a systematic way. In 1998, three Centers were established in New Jersey, followed by the opening of three additional Centers.

Since that time, the Scottish Rite Freemasons have been national leaders in the effort to help children and their families overcome the painful obstacles of dyslexia. The Children’s Dyslexia Centers of NJ tackle the challenge of dyslexia both by providing free Orton-Gillingham tutoring for children with dyslexia and by training a growing cadre of highly skilled and dedicated tutors.
