THANK YOU for supporting literacy in our community through PC READS!

PC READS PROGRAMMING INCLUDES:

MIND Youth Program:

Our MIND Youth Program is designed to assist students with learning differences to develop self-advocacy skills and build self-esteem. MIND holds 4 annual events and older students act as mentors in the program. Programs are open to all students in the PCSD area with learning differences.  

Advocate Program:

Our Certified Dyslexia Advocates meet with families to ensure that children receive appropriate educational services and support. We receive about 50 new requests for assistance each year. With your support, along with grants from the PCCF Community Fund and the Park City Rotary Club, we have continued to expand this program and hired our first Program Manager in Fall 2020.

Elevating Literacy Program:

PC READS is committed to ensuring that effective reading instruction is provided to ALL students by educating and supporting parents and teachers. Each teacher we reach has the ability to change hundreds, if not thousands, of students' lives through improved reading instruction.  A few program highlights:

 Professional Development Grants 
New 2020 Resource Book Project
Dyslexia Awareness Presentations
Presentation at IDA's 2019 Annual Reading, Learning & Literacy Conference
Annual Elevating Literacy Award
Author & Motivational Speaker, Jonathan Mooney (Oct. 2019)

Past speakers include Dean Bragonier, Barbara Wilson and the Dyslexia Training Institute. Let us know if you’d like us to give a Dyslexia Awareness Presentation to your school or organization! We have presented at PCSD Elementary Schools, Weilenmann School of Discovery, Educational Advantage, PC MOPS, MARC's Lunch & Learn and the Sunrise Rotary Club.


MANY PEOPLE FIND IT SURPRISING TO LEARN THAT:

  • 1 out of 5 people is affected by dyslexia (NIH Research)
  • Dyslexia is the most common learning disability
  • A child who is unexpectedly struggling to learn to read is most likely dyslexic
  • Dyslexia is often hereditary: a child of a dyslexic parent has a 50% chance of being dyslexic

With 4,700 students enrolled in the Park City School District, over 900 students may be dyslexic.
