A Message from YCDC Co-Directors Drs. Sally & Bennett Shaywitz


Dr. Sally Shaywitz at Louisiana Key Academy.

Join Us in Louisiana

Physician-scientists and YCDC co-directors Drs. Bennett and Sally Shaywitz care passionately about dyslexia and the futures of children who are dyslexic.

LKA truly leads the way in providing the environment; the educators; the consistent, evidence-based instruction and accommodations; and support necessary for dyslexic boys and girls to thrive, to learn and to gain self-esteem as capable learners.
