Join us for multi-sensory, small-group, structured literacy intervention using the Wilson Reading System. Built for any 1st - 8th grade student who has dyslexia, dysgraphia, or general literacy struggles that negatively impact their learning or self-confidence.
Kick off with a FREE individual comprehensive informal assessment with each student, parents or guardians, and other professionals to assess target areas and set individual learning goals.
Maintain individualized instruction while benefiting from the social dynamic of working alongside peers. Active, social, student-owned educational experiences lead to deeper learning.
With two 90-minute blocks a week, students will receive a total of three hours of instruction allowing them to complete two full Wilson lessons. This is the minimum amount of intervention recommended to successfully close gaps. read more about the Wilson Reading system here.

Our mission is to provide excellent quality reading intervention at an affordable cost. At approximately $33.33 an hour, we are able to offer the lowest private Wilson Reading Intervention rate across the city of Chicago that we have encountered. To keep things streamlined for us and thus help keep costs low, we have shifted our pricing to a course rate of $2000 for the entire semester. This represents 20 weeks of instruction and testing, resulting in a price of $100 per week. We have several payment plans available:
If you choose this method, we will send you an invoice in January for $2000 and this will cover the cost of the course for the entire semester. You will be able to pay via **credit card, via bank transfer or via Venmo.
If you choose this method, we will send you an invoice that will be due the first of each month for five months, January-May. Each invoice will be $400. You will be able to pay via **credit card, via bank transfer or via Venmo.
