Training teachers & developing student talent
Learn about Conner, who first met Holly in second grade and has been working with her for nearly three years. While his school was telling us he needed to be held back a grade for the second time, she worked with him and she and saw that bright boy hiding inside. With her diagnosis of Irlen’s Syndrome and her help, Conner is now a different boy. Holly not only inspires him to do his best and to persist through challenges, she sees his gifted qualities and allows him to flourish.
In 2017, with the Irlen Syndrome Foundation as our fiscal sponsor, we raised money to pay for remediation and voluntarily screened an entire grade level at Coral Mountain Academy in Coachella. We diagnosed twenty students (15%) with Irlen Syndrome. This rate is consistent with general population statistics. Learn how we helped these students.
