Haley’s Hope is dedicated to assisting students in all academic areas through our comprehensive dyslexia learning center.
Dyslexia causes difficulty with reading and spelling, however it also effects reading comprehension, math, and writing. Challenges with maintaining academic demands often become debilitating.
Haley’s Hope extensively uses the Orton-Gillingham approach for the multiple learning needs of the each student. Lesson plans are designed with the Orton-Gillingham approach to meet students at their level by managing instruction delivered to their individual strengths and weaknesses.
Students with dyslexia need additional help in organizing and identifying the simple materials of language for reasoning and application. Elements of language that non-dyslexic learners easily develop must be taught through a direct and systematic approach.
Haley’s Hope offers one-on-one tutoring that greatly improves reading, spelling and writing of children and adults with dyslexia. We ensure this success through our certified and skillful coaches who methodically instruct with the Barton Reading and Spelling System, a proven Orton-Gillingham approach.
Individuals with dyslexia need this one-on-one help so they can move forward at their own pace. Our coaches teach, build esteem, give immediate positive and corrective feedback, and develop skills and confidence. They create an environment of reading success instilling confidence and alleviating the obstacles typically associated with dyslexia.
Our student’s improvements are seen and measurable
Ideally, dyslexia is caught in grades K-2, but many of our students are in higher grades. Some are adults. It is never too late to learn how to read and write.
Students come to our private classrooms and learn directly from their personal coach, moving at their individual pace. Our center is located in West Fargo, ND, with satellites in Detroit Lakes, Mahnomen, and Hawley, MN.
We also offer remote sessions to further reach families in outlying communities who are not able to consistently travel to our centers.
Caring Haley’s Hope coaches are here to work with your schedule, tutoring during and after the school day and throughout the summer months. It is critical students work consistently year-round for continued growth.
Two sessions per week of 50 minutes are recommended for best results.
Since 2011, we’ve helped over 600 children get back on track. We look forward to helping more children reach their true potential with the ability to read and write!
Study skill challenges are common among students, leaving them unable to reach their true academic potential.
Being unorganized, not focusing when studying, late assignments and poor testing can stop students from learning and negatively affect grades.
Haley’s Hope provides strategies for students at all levels, from elementary through college, to understand the importance of strong executive function, organized materials needed for learning, time management, pre-requisite comprehension, note taking and test taking skills.
We help students understand a variety of critical skills designed to build, increase and refine strategies and work habits to boost academic achievement.
Individual Academic Mentoring (I-AM)
Haley’s Hope is dedicated to working alongside students to encourage academic success.
Through our I-AM program, trained instructors assist learners in exploring techniques and strategies to apply when working through educational material. Creating a pathway to learning allows each student to focus on their strengths, increasing self-advocacy and motivation to attack assignments.
I-AM is for every student, not just those who are dyslexic.
Results are not only measurable in grade point, but more importantly, in each student’s confidence with academic skills as they relate to their traditional classroom setting.
Haley’s Hope works to create a better understanding of basic math skills for students in elementary school, no matter what age or grade.
Discover the significance of understanding the 'language of math' while engaging in foundational math skills through our multi-sensory approach. Students increase confidence for general math concepts by building individual skills through our CRA (Concrete, Representational, and Abstract) learning approach.
This program is still in the development stage.
Haley’s Hope provides assistance to parents to guide strategies for dyslexic students to access curricula and become stronger at learning independently through their Individual Education Plans (IEP) or 504 Plan developments. We’ll prepare you with information, help you understand anything that’s unclear, even attend IEP and 504 Plan meetings for support and guidance.
This support includes suggestions for accommodations and modifications to curricula allowing each student the ability to achieve the same learning objective while working on increasing their strengths and overcoming their weaknesses.
Teachers and schools aren’t to blame when students with dyslexia can’t keep pace. Nor are moms, dads or children themselves; we can all be partners at new approaches.
We strive to create a circle of support between all individuals involved in a student’s educational years. Adopting life-changing techniques to overcome dyslexia takes patience and understanding. However, by working together we’re all rewarded when we see better self-esteem and improved grades for students.
