Children are eligible regardless of economic status or Masonic affiliation. The Orton-Gillingham approach, a sequential, multisensory, phonetic approach to language, is used as the basis for tutoring and tutor training.
The Children's Dyslexia Center of Lancaster opened in 2002 and has helped as many as 150 students overcome dyslexic challenges; at least half of them have graduated from the program. Funding for the program, which averages $6,000 per student per year, comes in large measure from the local fundraising efforts undertaken by the Lancaster Lodge of Perfection and the board of governors that oversees the program. Some of the fundraising efforts include holiday pie sales, apple dumpling and chicken corn soup sales, the annual Lancaster W. Scott Stoner Memorial Children's Dyslexia Center Walk, and the Extraordinary Give.
