For any high school or college student who has dyslexia, dysgraphia, or struggles with executive functioning, we offer a one-time, 4-day evening workshop.

Each student will walk away with a personalized toolbelt of resources and strategies for academic success. Perfect for anyone who wants to better handle the increased rigor and quantity of reading, writing and time-management in higher education.

Redwood Literacy is great! They have a talent of zoning in on what is needed to help get the results that will really help their clients. Since my college-aged daughter has been tutored by Kait, her grades have increased dramatically and she is really enjoying the academic challenges of college.
