Whatcom Learning Lab is a not-for-profit community literacy resource. Our purpose is to help beginning and challenged readers ages 5 to 95 learn to read in English. The emphasis is on early intervention with one-to-one tutoring assistance from trained community volunteers.
We use a reading program designed for dyslexic or reading challenged students. This structured program also works well with typical learners. Private evaluation for dyslexia and other learning disabilities available at additional cost.
As a volunteer with the Whatcom Learning Lab you will receive training, a manual with step-by-step directions, and access to video demonstrations for each lesson you can watch online. You also reap the satisfaction of seeing your student grow and develop a mutually beneficial bond by the end of the school year.
