Dr.  Elaine B. Jett

In 1997 Dr. Jett became aware that there was a deficiency in the development of some children to read and spell correctly in her Sylvan Learning Centers.  In the fall of 1997, Dr. Jett developed DIA to help these children.  Often these children were highly intelligent and sometimes even gifted individuals, in good health, but not responding to specific remedial instruction in reading, comprehension, and vocabulary development.  These children were dyslexic.

Through extensive studies and use of various research-based methods of working with dyslexics, a Clinic for the diagnosis and treatment of dyslexia evolved.  In working directly with clients, methods of organizing and delivering therapy were designed, tested, and researched.  Thus the Dyslexia Institutes of America evolved under her direction.

Program For Success

From a battery of diagnostic tests, The Dyslexia Institutes of America determines if your child has dyslexia, what type of dyslexia is present, and the level of severity of dyslexia.  Following the diagnosis, an individualized program of therapy is designed for each client based on strengths and weaknesses shown in the diagnostic testing.  When the client enrolls in therapy, further tests are administered to pinpoint reading (decoding) and spelling (encoding) problems.  Therapy is administered in the learning style of each client to train cognitive processing and address weak phonetic areas to aid in reading and spelling in school.
