"Believing all people are entitled to fulfill their potential, the Dyslexia Institute of Indiana exists to serve all children, adolescents and adults with specific language disabilities. DII provides skills, services, and strategies that enable individuals to attain their full potential by learning to manage the challenges of dyslexia and benefit from its advantages".
The Dyslexia Institute of Indiana is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization whose mission is to serve children, adolescents, and adults with specific reading/language disabilities. Beginning with the student at the center, DII provides individualized, one-on-one tutoring services that are specific to the needs of each individual. DII values and believes in the importance of providing skills, services, and strategies that enable individuals to attain their full potential.
Incorporated in 1989, DII began its journey with Camp Delafield - a summer program offering intensive one on one instruction and recreation for children ages seven through fourteen. In addition, DII has served thousands of children through: 1) the Wells Outreach Education Program, a one on one community based tutoring program started in 1994; 2) Ready Set READ, a school based program which began in 2005; 3) parent education sessions; and 4) information and referral services. In doing so, DII gives the joy of reading to the reading/language disabled.
