What is Dyslexic All Day?
Summit Academy is redefining school options for dyslexic learners. Typically, dyslexic students are successful in schools that specialize only in remediation. Summit Academy ventures to embody remediation while providing expeditionary learning that is: active, challenging, meaningful, public, and collaborative for both dyslexic and traditional learners.
What is Expeditionary Learning (EL)?
Expeditionary Learning schools inspire the motivation to learn, engage teachers, and students in new levels of focus and effort, and transform schools into places where students and adults become leaders of their own learning. This model is ideal for the dyslexic mind.
Who is Summit Expeditionary Academy?
At Summit, teachers talk less and students talk more. We believe the most important people we can influence are in the next generation. Our kids are critical thinkers who investigate deeply and are excited about it. www.summit-ed.org
How will my gift make a difference?
Your gift will help to create a paradigm shift in how dyslexic learners are taught – while embracing how they learn. New doors will be open for dyslexic learners globally.

A Fit for Me

Dear Friends and Family,

I am passionate about the new Dyslexic All Day pilot program at Summit Expeditionary Academy. If you only have 3 minutes the video above will inspire you as well.

This is my story. In the last four years of Noah’s schooling I have often wondered why he just didn’t seem to be reading or writing as well as the other kids. We tried in several ways to remediate the challenge only to find that it continued to hold him back. He was not reading like the other kids and his writing was well…Noah’s writing, hard to read and not well thought out. If you talk to Noah, he will talk your ear off but his knowledge was just not showing up in his school work. In fact, he was beginning to really dislike school and to seek out other ways to be “popular” that weren’t always popular with the teachers. We had Noah evaluated and found that he has been identified with dyslexia! This year Noah is entering 5th grade at Summit and we are very excited to have a program tailored to his specific needs that will allow him to excel in his strengths and build on his weaknesses.

Dyslexic All Day recognizes a basic truth; that dyslexic learners are not just dyslexic when they read and write, but are dyslexic all day long. This program is not just about remediation – is is about teaching to the strengths of the dyslexic mind and creating a paradigm shift in how educational programs can embrace dyslexic learners. Successful implementation of this pilot program will allow for us to broaden our scope of impact to include educators and students at a global level.

I am writing to ask for your help to launch this pilot program – an ambitious goal of raising $24,000 in 24 days. No amount is too small. We will keep you updated and inspired for a short 24 Days (Nov 1-24 ) while we launch this fundraising initiative.

Please share YOUR dyslexic story here: www.facebook.com/dyslexicallday. Please feel the passion and donate.

With Gratitude,
Joel, Tammy and Noah Edmonds
