Dyslexia, Freemasonry and Dayton, Ohio

The Neil and Willa Jean Smalley Children’s Dyslexia Center Valley of Dayton for Children with dyslexia is a free of charge service supported by the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite, Valley of Dayton, under The Supreme Council.

We provide a much needed service to the Dayton community, with no regard to race, color, sex, creed, sect, or Masonic affiliation. The Learning Center provides a warm, welcoming environment for your child, and we hope this web site will act as your guide to the center, as well as dyslexia in general.

Under the direction of Director Donna Donahue we have worked to place an abundance of information on this web site, including training, enrollment, and sponsoring. Please bookmark this site, and return often for updates and information on current events.

Our Mission

Provide, free of charge, the highest quality multisensory reading and written language tutorial services for children with dyslexia, through a network of nationally recognized centers of excellence.

Promote and encourage education of professionals, tutorial trainees, and the public, to become resources in teaching children to read.

Advance scientific knowledge of dyslexia through support of clinical research, to improve today’s standards and tomorrow’s care.

Donate to Our Future

As with all organizations that offer a service such as this, we need funding.

Freemasonry, specifically the 32° Masons, provide most of our funding, and the source of this is donations.

While all contributions benefit children with dyslexia, donors to the Children’s Dyslexia Centers, Inc. can designate how they want their gifts to be used.

The Children’s Dyslexia Centers, Inc. is exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service and all contributions are tax deductible.
