Mission: Everyone Deserves the Power of Literacy!

The Blosser Center for Dyslexia Resources is the only independent, non-profit center in the Northwest accredited by the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators. We are dedicated to helping children and adults achieve their potential despite dyslexia or related literacy difficulties. The Blosser Center was founded in 2000 to continue the educational and advocacy work of Dorothy Blosser Whitehead, M.S., a nationally recognized leader in establishing standards for reading specialists.
