Let's Make Learning Accessible!
Our express goal is to give the right of literacy to all island learners who struggle with language and literacy by establishing the necessary foundation skills and cultivating critical thinking. Literacy provides a person access to what the world has to offer so they can fulfill their personal dreams both socially and academically and improve their opportunities for lifelong success.
Speech & Language
Treatment Non-Profit Program
Martha's Vineyard Language & Literacy Project was created out of a recognized need for increased support of the families in our community whose children struggle with Oral, Written & Language-based learning difficulties including dyslexia and dysgraphia.
Consequences of under-diagnosis and/or insufficient treatment are broad and can be significant:
Negative effects on academic success and psycho-social well-being throughout life
Children and adolescents often experience intense frustration. They may act aggressively or withdraw
Challenged learners frequently become targets of bullying and ridicule. They may have low self-esteem and, unfortunately, may even develop mental health problems, including anxiety and depression
