Graham’s Story

“We felt that we had exhausted the help at school so we needed more help from other sources,” said Barbara, Graham’s mother.

Your support makes the difference of a lifetime.

Graham is an average elementary school boy in many ways. He loves hunting and fishing and wants to be a farmer when he grows up. But Graham has dyslexia and when he was in the 4th grade, he was reading at a 1st grade level. That’s when his family learned about the Literacy Council’s Augustine Project. After one year of tutoring, Graham improved post-test scores in multiple literacy areas by a full grade level. His sight word accuracy alone improved from 22% to 63%!
