Planning for the Orton-Gillingham Academy began in 1991 as a response to discussions initiated by the Orton Dyslexia Society (now known as the International Dyslexia Association). The planning and the implementation of the Academy was a collaboration of a group of dedicated and distinguished Orton-Gillingham Approach teachers and educators from throughout the United States concerned with how better to serve individuals with dyslexia, fellow professionals, and the public interest.

The Rankin Institute was created in 2004 as the outreach component of The Fletcher School to provide education and resources to teachers, professionals, and parents. It supports families by providing education and practical techniques for understanding and parenting their children with learning differences.

We believe everyone deserves to be understood. That’s why shaping the world for difference isn’t just one of our goals — it’s our main goal. Discover how we continue to work toward it by helping the 1 in 5 Americans who learn and think differently.

The Florida Center for Reading Research (FCRR) is an interdisciplinary research center at Florida State University. Drawing from multiple disciplines, FCRR investigates all aspects of reading and reading-related skills across the lifespan. Through rigorous and robust research, innovation, and engagement, FCRR advances the science of reading to improve learning and achievement from birth through adulthood.

The International Dyslexia Association – South Carolina (IDA-SC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving as a valuable resource to individuals with dyslexia and their families, teachers/tutors, educational professionals, and the medical community. Our primary mission is to promote dyslexia awareness to positively impact the lives of individuals who are struggling with dyslexia.

Our mission is to advance the awareness, understanding, and use of evidence-aligned reading instruction across South Carolina, by connecting all stakeholders in order to ensure equitable literacy instruction for all students.

Reading is the essential foundation of all other learning. According to the most recent state data, only 54% of 3rd grade students in South Carolina are reading on grade level. The situation requires urgent action. Thankfully, we know real progress is possible.
