THE HISTORY OF ASDEC

Researchers estimate that 10-15% of the U.S. population is dyslexic; yet only five of every 100 receive some form of intervention.

In 2000, Claire Nissenbaum founded ASDEC to help dyslexic children and adults overcome potentially life-long barriers to learning. Along with the clinical psychologist Betty Levinson, with whom she had partnered since 1974, Ms. Nissenbaun developed the only training center in the Washington, DC region that offers evidence-based structured, multisensory techniques in language skills (decoding, fluency, spelling, writing, vocabulary, and comprehension), mathematics, and study skills, as part of a Certificate program.
