Local Non-Profit that provides funding to schools mostly in Cobb County but also includes schools for the city of Marietta, Decatur and Atlanta. The organization's mission is to provide additional training to Teachers in the area of Dyslexia. We are the only civic organization in Cobb County that provides funding to help train teachers in this specialized area. There are many students in the schools that have Dyslexia but may not have been tested for it just yet who can't afford tutors or private schools. Teaching children with Dyslexia requires specific training in our schools. Providing Grant money helps them address this much needed area that has long been overlooked or under funded.
