Julia has worked with our son over the past 2 years. He has struggled to read and write and was diagnosed with Dyslexia in 2nd grade. The school interventions were not working so we decided to look for a specialized tutor.

Since working with Julia, his reading and writing has dramatically improved. During distance learning Julia continued to engage him and he made more progress with tutoring than he did with traditional online school…"

IDSS, located in the San Francisco Bay Area, supports and advises dyslexic learners and their families.

We partner with parents and school districts to ensure that each student’s individual needs are being met. In direct collaboration with parents, we assess whether the student has access to the services and accommodations they need within their school to develop to their fullest potential. We provide coaching to empower parents to understand their rights and to become active and informed members of their student’s Individualized Education Team (IEP).

With our expertise in special education law, we help families develop a comprehensive plan for success. When needed, we attend IEP meetings with parents to advocate directly on the student’s behalf.

For students, dyslexia screenings and remediation in Structured Literacy using the Slingerland® Approach are also offered.
