About The Dyslexia Center of Princeton

Parents and teachers often become aware of a child's difficulties with reading and spelling during the early school years. They sometimes "have a hunch" even before then. Dyslexic individuals are usually intelligent, and sometimes gifted. However, failure to respond to remedial instruction in reading, comprehension, spelling, and vocabulary development often puzzles and frustrates parents and teachers, as well as dyslexic individuals themselves.

As the parents of a child with special educational needs, Margaret Tuttle—a certified teacher and Princeton University graduate—and Tom Quinn—a former educational publisher—opened a learning center that addressed the challenges of dyslexic children and adults. Meg and Tom opened The Dyslexia Center of Princeton (DCP) in May 2009. The DCP's mission encompasses:

  1. providing dyslexia assessment for ages 4½ through adult that determines whether an individual has dyslexia, what type it is, how severe it is, and—most important of all—what causes that particular individual's dyslexia, and

  2. offering dyslexia remediation that treats the underlying causes that were discovered through each individual's assessment while simultaneously bringing reading and spelling skills to grade level.

As a result of DCP's research-based, data-driven program, Meg and Tom's child, now a high school student, reads at grade level… and, more important to those of you reading this web site, studies show that treatment at DCP yields an average of 18 months' reading fluency improvement in the first 6 months of therapy.
