Certified Barton System Tutor

Welcome to Worden Dyslexia Services!  We are committed to providing effective tutoring to dyslexic individuals in Pinellas County.  In addition, we can screen for dyslexia in children as young as 5 1/2, or half-way through kindergarten.  The earlier dyslexia is discovered, the easier it is to work with.

Thanks to 30+ years of research by the National Institute for Health and the development of Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (you know, those pictures of the brain that shows which parts light up when you do various tasks?) we know more than ever about what dyslexia is and how to remediate it.

Here are some of the things we know today:

  • Dyslexia affects approximately 15 - 20% of the population
  • Dyslexia affects approximately 80% of the studentsthat have been identified for special ed
  • It takes 4 times as long to remediate a student identified in 4th grade as it does a student identified in    Kindergarten
  • The most obvious indicator of dyslexia in the classroom is horrible spelling and writing mechanics

Many schools in Pinellas County will not discuss dyslexia and offer no approved tutoring program.  If you suspect dyslexia, I recommend that you visit the website below, and watch some of the videos about dyslexia. You may recognize yourself and/or your child. 

It you would like to discuss what you've seen, please contact me at 727-501-2028 or send me an email. I'd love to talk to you.
