Specialized Tutoring for Children with Dyslexia

ocations in NW and SE Calgary!

Do you have a child with dyslexia or a child who is struggling with reading, writing, and spelling, despite regular classroom instruction?

Having a child who is struggling with learning to read can be extremely stressful for the whole family. As a mom and teacher with two dyslexic sons, I know from experience just how hard it can be. Classrooms are bursting at the seams, teachers have little time for one-on-one instruction, and playing the wait-and-see game just doesn’t feel right.

Struggling to read at school can impact all areas of your child’s academic life. Their self-esteem, relationships with peers, and overall attitude toward school can all be negatively affected when reading and writing don’t come easily.

Looking for a way to teach my own children led me to find the Orton-Gillingham (OG) approach. OG is the gold standard in literacy instruction for struggling readers. I became a certified Orton-Gillingham Practitioner because I am passionate about helping all children learn to read, regardless of their diverse learning differences. My qualified team of teachers at Literacy Unlocked will work with you to support your child so that they can rise to their potential.

We would be honoured to help your child on the path to success in literacy!

“My son has improved so much since being tutored by Kaitlyn. In such a short space of time he has gone from being incredibly emotional, fearful and resistant- when faced with reading or writing. To now getting out his work by himself, sitting at the table and being enthusiastic to complete it. His writing has improved so much – I can’t actually quite believe it, and his reading is so much better – we no longer have tears of frustration and fear!!! The lessons are fun and rewarding and the homework is short but extremely effective. I cannot recommend Kaitlyn enough. My son looks forward to his lessons and is happy and proud of his progress. She has changed my son’s academic life!! Thank you Kaitlyn!!!”
