Georgia's Dyslexic-Specific Education
Organized by: Katherine Peacock
Georgia Peacock is a sweet, spunky six year old who loves to learn yet has always struggled in the education setting. She excels in arts and science and would spend hours looking at books yet continued to tell her mother, "I don't want to learn to read." Georgia's mom, Katherine, never gave up on her daughter, knowing something wasn't quite right and sought assistance from numerous sources to help find a better way to help her learn. In the summer of 2016, Katherine took Georgia to Woodland Hall Academy for the "Hardman and Associates Extended Evaluation" which determined that Georgia was not only far above her age level in IQ but that she also has "Deep Developmental Dyslexia", "Severe Spatial" and "Severe Directionality" and "Severe Behavior Overlays". This explains her struggles for the past three years in the regular and montessori school systems because she was unable to get the specialized attention that her diagnosis requires. The good news is that Woodland Hall Academy specializes in educating children, just like Georgia, and helping them excel with their "learning differences". However, the school is considered a private school and the tuition is extraordinarily high. Not only does Woodland Hall provide the education and teaching styles necessary to Georgia's success, but also an environment where she can be herself. Katherine believes above all that Georgia should feel comfortable in her surroundings and after Georgia completed her first week, she stated, "They understand me!!" The cost of the tuition coupled with the fact that it has to be paid upfront each semester creates a tremendous burden on the Peacock family. No matter what they are committed to providing Georgia with what is best for her, placing the financial costs aside. Currently she is enrolled in a half-day program and being home-schooled in the afternoon to remain as affordable as possible. Please consider a donation to help cover the cost of the specialized schooling. Any amount helps and we would love to see Georgia be able to become a full-time student at Woodland Hall Academy to solidify her success in overcoming the diagnosis that family is faced with. $20,000 is the cost for a full-time, one year tuition. Thank you for your time and financial contributions in helping this already brilliant young lady achieve great success in her future.
