WILDD Knows Dyslexia

What makes the Wisconsin Institute for Learning Disabilities/Dyslexia (WILDD) so effective? Our approach was developed by a special education teacher who is also dyslexic. Erv Carpenter, our co-founder and Executive Director, was diagnosed at 32 and has grown to be a nationally-recognized speaker, dyslexia expert, and creator of the CLASS™ academic therapy. With 30+ years of teaching experience in special education, certifications, and service to multiple Dyslexia Centers, Erv, and Co-Founder, Kim Campbell – Carpenter, have dedicated their lives to helping people with dyslexia.

At WILDD we understand that there is no greater frustration for parents than to watch a child struggle with reading and writing.  We like to keep parents constantly in the loop, because your involvement in your child’s learning is critical.

Correctional System

Did you know that on average, juvenile offenders enter correctional institutes with a third grade, or lower, reading level? The learning assistance that juvenile offenders receive from WILDD not only boosts their self-esteem, but also lowers the likelihood of repeat offenses. Assisting them to compete with their peers makes an enormous difference in maintaining a future career and becoming a role model for their community.
