The Dyslexia School of Houston represents our founder Tammy’s vision for better education. After devoting years of her life to public education and garnering a reputation for being “the dyslexia lady” in HISD, Tammy knew how many families needed help.
She knew that public and even private schools weren’t offering dyslexic students and their families the diagnoses, resources and attention they really needed. Even worse, the limited opportunities available for families to receive this help came with unnecessary barriers to basic support. Many families still struggle to simply qualify for a proper diagnostic test. She knew this needed to change.
So in the middle of a pandemic, Tammy decided to make that change herself. She left her HISD role in the summer of 2019 to embark on a new venture and bring her vision to life. The Dyslexia School of Houston was founded in September of 2020, with a clear goal: to make dyslexia education accessible to families who needed it most and provide students with the first good instruction they needed to unlock literacy.
