Literacy for Dyslexia
Our mission is to support youth mental health initiatives by promoting literacy in underprivileged students who are dyslexic.
Literacy for Dyslexia:
Through the provision of the Logical Letters Program, we aim to address the significant educational needs of youngsters with dyslexia (learning differences) by providing quality literacy interventions not otherwise accessible to this population.
Our goal is to help these youth to become successful and motivated adults by overcoming the barriers that dyslexia traditionally imposes.
Marcy Scott is the founder and President of Logical Letters, a literacy program and learning center devoted to dyslexic children.
Marcy began her career as a teacher and resource specialist in the public system. This was followed by over 35 years in private practice, where she has witnessed countless students with dyslexia enjoying her program while experiencing huge literacy accomplishments. She has a deep understanding of the correlation between literacy and success, derived from decades of participation in the educational and emotional transformation of young people with dyslexia.

Over the past decades, Marcy designed and developed the Logical Letters Program using the unique minds of dyslexic students as the driving force. Her program has been highly successful in supporting dyslexic students in becoming very competent readers and writers. After many years of evolution, in 2005, Logical Letters was incorporated and the program was copyrighted. A digital version is soon to be released.
In addition to working directly with children, Marcy provides training for her Logical Letters team of dyslexia therapists and for resource specialists and classroom teachers from a variety of schools. She has also licensed and supported the Logical Letters Program in a private elementary school where it has been an unqualified success. Marcy and her team also conduct dyslexia awareness workshops for parents and educators.
Marcy is helping to redefine the once-thought dyslexic handicap as instead a dyslexic advantage.
Marcy’s dream is to be able to provide the Logical Letters Program to disadvantaged dyslexic students whose potentials often go unachieved.
