The funds will be used for Quinn's Dyslexia tutoring only.

Severe Dyslexia affects less than 5% of the population.

Quinn is a normal 11 years old boy with above average intelligence. He dreams one day of being an Astronaut and going to the moon. He loves science and math. However, Quinn is very frustrated. He has been working very hard since kindergarten to read and write.

In October of 2011, after 5 years of struggling with reading and then math facts, Quinn was diagnosed with Severe Dyslexia. As he entered the 5th grade, he was reading at a 2nd grade level and writing below that. He understood Algebraic equations, but couldn’t memorize the math facts. It was a relief to know why all the hard work was not producing the expected results with such an intelligent child.

It was even more exciting to find out there was hope! The hope comes with a large price tag however. Being severly compromized in all four of the dyslexic areas means the best way to help him is one on one tutoring with a specialist. He now has a special tutor to help build those left brain operations, but at the cost of over $25,000 over the next 3 years to bring him up to grade level before he reaches High School. It has been amazing to see how quickly he has progressed. We have already seen the results. He can spell 3 syllable words and memorize facts now.
We however, have exhausted our savings and need your help.

You may donate online or send a check to: 3401 Kachemak Cr., Anchorage Alaska 99515. Made out to Quinn's Tutor: Bo Harris.
