Dyslexia Ottawa was created 26 February, 2016 by Philip Powel Smith, the owner of Meadowlark Tutorials in Ottawa, Ontario Canada. It was created as a result of hearing one too many stories of Dyslexic students experiencing a lack of support and proper educational instruction in their schools.

These students need a voice. As an adult Dyslexic who has faced the same hurdles in school many years ago, I am compelled to help this generation.

Our logo is representing the thought: “What must we do to help these students?”  The circle represents the collective focus of what has to happen. The word “DO” is circled in warmth and security and the the word is green for growth and prosperity. It was created on a note pad during a school meeting by simply writing “do” and circling it as I questioned what the teachers were willing and able to do.  A simple thought, leading to action for a student, has become Dyslexia Ottawa.

This website is a continuously growing and evolving site. Information will be added and new pages created as we grow and become what is needed to help us help other Dyslexics succeed in school, life, and work.
