Helping Young Minds

Catch Up to Their Grade Level

This program is for children in grades 2-6 with an active IEP for dyslexia or a specific language disability.  Trained volunteer tutors teach students using hands-on activities through the Barton Reading & Spelling System©, an Orton-Gillingham-influenced, simultaneously multisensory, explicit and systematic phonics program.


KidsQuest tutors are also trained to deliver Structured Word Inquiry (SWI) instruction.  In this way, students receive both left-brain (speech, language processing and reading) and right-brain (visual processing, problem solving) instruction.


Student progress is assessed regularly as they move through the Barton levels.  Instruction continues until students achieve grade level competency.  Students will be screened by our reading specialist to see if the Barton program would be an appropriate intervention.

Meet Miranda and her tutor, Tim

"When my child, Miranda, wasn’t able to keep up with the rest of her class in reading and spelling, I knew something was wrong.”

“Keelers Keep Going”

Carrie pushed to get Thomas support

“He has so much more to say and prove then what he is able to. To watch him grow and struggle less with each session leaves us grateful and speechless.”

Grandma gets involved
