Early Literacy Tutoring Opportunity
Partners in Opportunity, a local non-profit dedicated to closing the achievement gap, is looking for volunteer Literacy Tutors for an after-school tutoring program for low-income early elementary school children in grades K-2. This is a unique opportunity for students to earn practicum hours needed to complete course requirements for the SMU Learning Therapy program or other graduate/undergraduate courses in the field of education, and to earn hours toward CALP or CALT certification, while making a significant difference in the lives of underprivileged kids. The program runs Monday through Friday on campus at SMU.
Please see the Literacy Tutor Job Description. Literacy Tutors will use a structured literacy curriculum and will receive support and training from a Lead Dyslexia Interventionist with extensive expertise in early literacy. The time commitment for literacy tutors is 4:15-5:15, Monday through Friday. Tutors will work one-on-one with a given student throughout their involvement in the program.
If you have students in your program who are looking for hours or may be interested in the program, they can fill out an application here: Tutor Application
If they have any questions, they can email firstname.lastname@example.org.

IDA Recognized as an “Outstanding Organization” by the Child Mind Institute and crowd-sourced Votes
The Child Mind Institute is a national, independent nonprofit dedicated to transforming the lives of children and families struggling with mental health and learning disorders. Their annual Change Maker Awards celebrate individuals and organizations who raise awareness and dispel stigma, help children and families directly, or work to transform the way we understand and treat mental health and learning differences.
This spring, the Child Mind Institute nominated the International Dyslexia Association for their Outstanding Organization award that is won by crowd-sourced voting. “This award recognizes an organization for their uncompromising support of young people who struggle with mental health and learning disorders and the professionals who work to help them is results-oriented and have proven success.”
IDA wishes to thank all of its members, volunteers, staff and the entire dyslexia community for contributing to 70 years of changing lives and for taking the time to vote for a cause that has an impact on every person struggling to do something most of us take for granted.
