Since April 2012, the Donegan Burns Foundation has offered the Dyslexia Testing and Intervention Grant awarding thousands of dollars in the fight toward literacy. This private foundation has made it a goal to help those underserved with dyslexia. The grants, which are intended to assist with teacher education, equipment, testing, and intervention, are available to schools, afterschool programs and nonprofit organizations that work with children. The foundation’s funding helps to intervene before at-risk children with dyslexia reach third grade. With this support, these children can—and do—learn to read.
