Dyslexic Class Available in Central

By  | 

Twenty one students are involved in Dyslexic Classes sponsored by the Free and

Accepted Mason of the City of Central and the Blackwater United Methodist Church. The students come from seven public schools: Central Intermediate, Central Middle, Cohn, North Live Oak, McKinley Middle, Sharon Hills, and Tanglewood. There are three parochial schools: Galilee Baptist Academy, St.Alphonsus, St.Francis Xavier. There is one private school: Central Private. There are three students who are home schooled.


Classes are held in the Blackwater United Methodist Church. Currently there are four classes, one of which will graduate from the program on Thursday, May 15th.  Those students are: Connor Daniel Burns, Christian Alexander Czech, Lauren Gale Hiersche, Erin Pacheco and Joey Douglas Wills. The program involves two years of study and meet after school on the days public schools are in session. One class is composed of students in grades seven through nine. The other classes include grades fourth through six. Sometimes third grade students may be qualified to participate.  The program is fully funded by the Masonic Lodges of  Louisiana


The teachers of the classes are certified public school teachers who function as facilitators who work with an audio visual program that has been in service for over twenty years. The program focuses on helping students in the area of reading and spelling and understanding the English language.


If you have a child who is having difficult in the above areas you may secure a registration form and any of the above schools. If they do not have a registration form, then contact Rev. Brady Forman, the Central Lodge chairman of the program, at 225-261-9010. Applications are available at this time for the formation of another class.
