What is Dyslexia?

Dyslexia affects up to 1 in 5 people, but the experience of dyslexia isn't always the same. This difficulty in processing language exists along a spectrum - one that doesn't necessarily fit with labels like normal and defective. Kelli Sandman-Hurley urges us to think again about dyslexic brain function and to celebrate the neurodiversity of the human brain.

What is York Educational Services?

York Educational Services, LLC provides specialized tutoring using an Orton-Gillingham approach to instruction, small group instruction, informational workshops, and student advocacy.

With increased understanding of their rights and how school systems work, clients are empowered to effectively advocate their student’s unique needs to family, educators, and physicians. All York Educational Services tutors are specialists in one or more Orton-Gillingham approaches to teaching and are passionate about empowering others.

York Educational Services offers clients compassionate listening, guidance, and assistance to create an action plan for effective communication to teachers and school professionals. Each tutor has an understanding of parental rights within 504 plans and special education laws. They encourage a collaborative advocacy approach for prioritizing and obtaining appropriate accommodations and/or special services to meet student needs. We believe that when students, parents, and teachers work collaboratively to create an action plan that is based on the student’s strengths everyone wins and the student will achieve his or her highest potential!
