The Atlantic Seaboard Dyslexia Education Center is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) accredited by the International Multisensory Structured Languages Education Council (IMSLEC). Established in 2000, ASDEC's foundation is based on more than three decades of educational experience serving students with language-based learning disabilities. ASDEC's graduate-level training in structured multisensory language instruction enables teachers, tutors, parents and other educators to teach success to students with even the most severe learning disabilities.
ASDEC will become the regional leader for training, support, and advocacy of evidence-based multisensory teaching strategies essential for individuals who are dyslexic or have learning differences.
As a nationally accredited professional development center, ASDEC trains and certifies Academic Therapists and educates teachers, tutors, parents, and school leaders in effective methods to help individuals who are dyslexic or have other learning differences. Through our efforts, we enable individuals to achieve success, to acquire increased confidence in their talents, and to realize their full potential.
