We inspire students to BECOME CONFIDENT and CAPABLE learners.


When I first called the PDX Reading Specialist offices, I was so scared. But everyone took the time to answer my questions, listen to my story and help me find help for my daughter. Our tutor has been amazing…she is like part of our family.

Your training was truly life altering!  I didn’t know what I didn’t know, and now I just want to learn more. You have changed the way I teach and I know with confidence I can help more teachers do that as well. So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for sharing your wisdom. It is making a difference… one teacher at a time!
