- The Wired2Learn Foundation advocates for children with specific learning disabilities in our community, and provides financial support that allows access to innovative, brain based education.
- Children with a specific learning disability, such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia, are three times more likely to drop out of school.
- In partnership with Wired2Learn Academy (a new startup school in Post Falls) the Wired2Learn foundation provides scholarships and tuition assistance to children who struggle with learning disabilities.
- The Wired2Learn Foundation believes that children need and deserve an education based on how the brain learns best. Education should be innovative, and in line with current brain research in order to have the greatest impact.
- Please make a donation that will make a difference for underserved children right here in our community.
The Wired2Learn Foundation exists to provide tuition assistance to children with Specific Learning Disabilities (SLDs). We have an incredible opportunity to help with tuition for all students who wish to attend Wired2Learn Academy for the 2018-2019 school year.
We are looking to raise $500,000 to off set tuition and provide scholarships for children with specific learning disabilities who want attend Wired2Learn Academy (W2LA).
W2LA is a start-up school in Post Falls serving children grades 3-12 with specific learning disabilities (SLDs). W2LA’s education model is a 3 legged stool in which each leg is scientifically proven to help kids with SLDs. You can learn more about this approach on the W2LA website here.
This is an incredible, under-served population of children. Our traditional schools do not have the means or ability to help these bright children who are struggling to learn to read, write, organize themselves, attend and understand math. The traditional approach to children with a SLD is teaching compensation skills and providing schoolwork accommodations. This approach, however, does not give children the academic ability to learn with their peers.
Children with SLD who do not get the proper remediation and help are likely to become problems for our community.
- 1 in 2 children with SLD will be in trouble with the law
- 2-3 times more likely to abuse drugs
- 20% of students have an SLD
I’m writing to you to ask you to support me and my cause to raise the scholarship funding for W2L Foundation. The Idaho Education Tax Credit rewards donors giving to Idaho schools and their foundations. For most couples, you can donate $2,000 to the school, and it will only cost you $352 out of pocket after tax implications. (Consult your CPA for specifics on your tax situation.) More information on the tax implications can be found here. Your donation will go directly to our scholarship fund, helping children who need it most.
Thank you in advance for your contribution. Your support means a great deal to me, the Foundation, and the children we serve.
Help us reach the goal of fully funding tuition for all W2LA students for the school year!
