Wimberley Community Center
Wimberley Dyslexia & Learning Center specializes in providing one-on-one and small group intensive dyslexia therapy and reading/language instruction. Our approach is tailored to meet the needs of each individual student through evidence-based multi-sensory, systematic instruction based on the Orton-Gillingham approach.
Our goal is to help children not only gain confidence in their reading and writing skills, but to become self-advocates as they recognize their own talents and gifts. We strive to build a community, both within our center and the larger community. We assist families in navigating the education system, provide outreach programs to local schools and educators, and create a partnership with schools, parents, and educators.
Our teachers are dedicated to providing appropriate instruction to our students, and have a deep understanding of dyslexia, structured literacy, and literacy development. All of our therapists hold a license of Certified Academic Language Therapists (CALT) through ALTA (Academic Language Therapy Association). This prestigious license ensures that our therapists are highly trained and committed to continuing their research and professional development in the area of dyslexia and language instruction. We also have reading tutors whom have all had extensive training in the Orton-Gillingham method.
Our highly trained therapists provide tailored Orton-Gillingham based instruction to help your child take flight and reach their full potential. Our sessions may be delivered in small group or one-on-one settings.
"Casey Harrison is our hidden gem in Wimberley! She has helped turn our son's obstacles into hurdles that he's learning steadily! His confidence and ability have soared since working with her. We are so grateful." - Christina L.
"When our son was first diagnosed with dyslexia we didn't know where to start. It was overwhelming and unsettling. From the first time I met with Casey, she immediately put me at ease about what lay ahead. Casey is an expert in her field and passionate about what she does and it shows in every interaction you have with her. " - Tina T.
"Casey is an awesome presenter! I learned so much." - Betsy H.
"Casey has extensive knowledge in all aspects of education, from the systems and procedures of the school setting, to deep knowledge of instructional practices and curriculum. Casey has served teachers and students with a great deal of compassion, detail, commitment and knowledge. Her dedication is evident through her constant pursuit of education." - Melissa P.
Education is at the heart of who we are and what we believe in. It is our goal to develop positive, lasting relationships with teachers and schools through meaningful professional development opportunities.

"The Dyslexia Parent Workshops have been a life line for our family. We have gained many valuable tools, and are encouraged about our son's academic future, and feel empowered to make solid decisions that will set him up for success. Having a resource like this in our very own little Wimberley, TX has been a dream come true." - Tina T.
"Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurobiological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge." (IDA Definition, 2002)
