At Dynaread we applaud the initiative of Dan Schuessler and Doug Jones to help students with Learning Disabilities find appropriate, adequate, and affordable Colleges.
WHY ARE WE HERE?
College costs are on the rise, outpacing the rate of inflation nearly five times over. The percentage of household income needed to pay for college today is as high as 29.3% in some states, a rate that hovered around 7% in 1980. Yet a college education remains a key requirement for career advancement and higher earning potential. Full-time workers with a bachelor's degree earn an average of 84% more over their lifetime than those with only a high school diploma.
HOW DO WE HELP?
ACO creates in-depth resources that address topics, questions and concerns related to higher education with an eye on affordability and accreditation. Resources include comprehensive guidebooks, student interviews, user-friendly search tools, federal datasets and other materials created and vetted by experts in their fields. Speaking of experts, our extended team includes six PhDs and more than twenty journalists, editors and subject-matter specialists with master's degrees or related educational credentials.
Our Dynaread team members are required to hold themselves accountable for serving our clients in adherence with our core values...
Dynaread has been developed in the trenches of actual remediation, with our feet firmly planted on the ground. Scientific research is essential (and we consistently use it), but we also understand the realities at home and in school. Not all homes have two parents, not all Dad's or Mom's are always home, there is oftentimes no money, schools lack staff or funding. We listen, we observe, we discuss, and we build the best solutions we can for older (ages 7+) struggling readers.
