We are now taking applications for a waiting list for our 2021 SUMMER INTENSIVE.

We have reached 24 registrations for our Summer Intensive, which was the originally planned capacity. All further applications will be put on a summer school wait list. In past years, we have been able to accommodate many of the waitlisted students, and we are working hard to get more tutors involved. Don’t give up hope!
If your student cannot be placed in our Summer Intensive, your deposit is fully refundable.
Visit our information page for all the details!

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.



  • Professional, individual instruction builds reading and spelling skills, improves reading comprehension and creates confidence and success.  Tutors are available throughout the Portland metro area.

Professional Development

  • Gives teachers and tutors the tools they need to help students who are falling further and further behind their classmates.
  • Learn The Classic Orton-Gillingham Approach, validated by over 75 years of scientific research: the “gold standard” of instruction for dyslexic/struggling readers.

Academic Testing

  • Academic testing and analysis pinpoints areas needing expert instruction and reveals gifts and talents.
  • The Blosser Center offers referrals for diagnostic testing for all ages.
