Such a strange turn of events for our world these past couple months. I pray you are all safe and healthy. You are much appreciated. Thank you for your giving, support, and prayers. We can't do it without you.
Bridging the Gaps Dyslexia Center has turned to all remote tutoring because of the COVID 19 virus. We have all the software to produce the same high quality service to you.
https://www.whizzimo.com/barton.html will give you more information on what remote tutoring looks like. Walmart has gifted the center with funds to cover more licenses. So very grateful.
Here's what has happened in February/March:
Training for High School teachers at Day Spring. What a bunch of amazing educators. They were all eager to learn, grow, and most of all help dyslexic students the right way.
Aims Work Study Program:
Our vision of helping students and families in need through Aims Colleges' Work Study program became a reality as we were approved in March. With centers and schools closed, we will be working online with these students.
These young gals are go-givers! Morgan, in the middle, is a nursing student at Aims and wants to work with children to give back to her community. Morgan will be focused on tutoring. Sarah, on the left, is a student at UNC at will be interning at the center during the summer. She has many gifts and is offering them to the center with her grant writing skills, her ability to connect and network in the community.
Community Coming Together:
We are so fortunate to have such a loving community. Kohl's Department Store in Loveland came over to volunteer painting our new math area we are launching soon.
We will be branching into helping students with math struggles, dyscalculia, or just need reinforcement on certain topics to strengthen their confidence and knowledge in those areas. More information will be coming. We are looking into providing this online as well to meet the needs during the Coronavirus situation. I will keep you all posted.
Lisa Stenzel with Emmadity came and did a class on sign language. Hoping to bring her back when we all can socialize again. Thank you, Lisa. So much fun.
Things will be slowing down for April because we are limited in our services and are doing all things remotely like the rest of the world. But we know that this too shall pass. We are thankful to you all for continuing to give during this challenging time.
Blessings and Stay Safe and Healthy.
