Designed to get children reading to their potential and back into the school of their choice.
“We can reveal the invisible child … the child who lives a voided and canceled life because of illiteracy. We can bring that person into a life of passion, meaning, literacy, active citizenship, and global community. We do not have to waste their potential with illiteracy.”
Join us and take strong action to ensure all students are literate and all teachers and tutors are knowledgeable and highly skilled in the science of teaching literacy.

Connections that Work (CTW) Summer and Winter Programs for Students with dyslexia
Why are we making this shift in our business model now?
After being asked for years to start a private school for students with dyslexia, we considered if that is what parents really want. Posie is a parent of four adult children who she taught to conquer their dyslexia. What they wanted was to stay or return to their beloved schools. We created programs designed to get our students returned to their regular school as competent readers, writers, and spellers who are equipped with skills for attention, critical thinking, and engagement in any class in any school.
Mission and Vision
Our mission is to return your child to their regular school as a competent reader, writer, and speller who is skilled and equipped with skills for attention, critical thinking, and engagement in any class.
Our vision is that your child sees themself as a confident and strategic learner in any setting.
Dyslexia with ADHD on top is spoken with a strong and joyous voice here.
“Stacy is reading aloud in class for the first time without tears! Now I can see her being college material. She is so bright, but was so frustrated. Not any more!”
“We wanted to thank you for making a difference in Nick’s life. Nick is a huge part of our life and when you help him, we all benefit. We really appreciate you taking the time to come to his IEP meeting. Thank you for your time, commitment and kindness.”
“Nate was able to go back to public school after CTW and we didn’t have to spend 3 hours a night helping him with his middle school homework again. What a relief!”
