ABC Youth Tests for Dyslexia

Spotlight on Dyslexia

ABC Youth Banner ABC Youth( Any Body Can)  was founded by  the  late champion boxer, Archie Moore, more than forty years ago.  His son, Billy Moore, continues his famous father’s work helping San Diego’s youth avoid drugs and gangs.

ABC was recently awarded $25,000 from the Donegan Burns Foundation which will help to effectively launch, test, and expand products and services that create stability in  literacy. Specifically, this grant will help test and intervene early Dyslexia amongst our participants.

ABC has gained momentum in the diagnostic testing of our students and will also be connecting with our partnered schools and other organizations to secure a minimum of 15 to 20 students per day.  We are on target to reach our goal of 300 students this school year, which will certainly make a difference in supporting those youngsters with learning disabilities who may otherwise go undetected and untreated.

 

The students below are completing  an assessment test to determine if they are at risk for dyslexia. For those who are at risk an intervention is administered.  Many at risk children learn to read at grade level  within months. The program is funded by the Donegan Burns Foundation.
