Connections that Work, LLC (CTW) is a Learning Center with Summer and Winter Programs for Students with reading struggles of many kinds, including dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia

and other language learning problems.

All parents want their children reading well and successful in math, no matter the causes of their struggles. We created programs designed to get our students returned to their regular schools successful in math, 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

The mission of our learning center is to return your child to their regular school  successful in math, 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 see themselves as a confident and strategic learner in any setting.

Important to note: All students are accepted on a 3 day trial basis for our Summer Reading Program and a 1 week trial basis for our School Year Program. CTW does not have the resources or specifically tailored programs to support students with a primary diagnosis or challenge that would otherwise impact their language and math acquisition or our instruction, such as behavioral, oppositional, or emotional disorders.

What Parents are Saying


“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!”
