Welcome Message

Welcome to D/A. 

We are so happy that you have found Dyslexia / ADHD of Connecticut and are taking some of your valuable time to explore our services. We are passionate about helping individuals left behind because they struggle with learning difficulties (primarily Dyslexia and ADD/ADHD). 

Very importantly, especially to our clients, we are NOT a franchise, and we pride ourselves on finding or creating the best interventions to help our clients succeed in all areas of literacy and foundational mathematics. 

Our literacy specialists are "long-timers" and have come to D/A to help clients in a way that just isn't possible in the public school sector because of the lack of resources and methods. 

Now in entering our first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth  Tenth year, we are so pleased to be growing and expanding, thus allowing us to help more people with our unsurpassed testing and intervention services. We hope that you find our site informative and decide to trust D/A with your most valuable possession - your child, spouse, relative or yourself.

Best Wishes, 

Les and Susan Fredette,
Operators / Owners

   D/A of CT is proud to introduce Dawn S.T.E.M.+ Academy, an all-day learning school for students in grades 3 to 8 with Dyslexia, ADD, ADHD and High Functioning Autism.

At Dawn Academy, students with great minds will be able to advance their education through an integration of a state-of-the-art, hands-on extended S.T.E.M+. curriculum AND the 1-on-1 remediation that they need to improve their mechanical reading, writing, math and executive functioning skills.

The S.T.E.M.+ (Plus) curriculum (i.e., Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) will expose students to all core subjects at their appropriate ability level. And the PLUS factor extends the standard S.T.E.M. concepts to include ART and Music (sometimes referred to as S.T.E.A.M). 

Although D/A of CT has been providing services for students for the past 10 years, this is the first year that we will be offering a full-day experience. Therefore, The Dawn Academy will only be accepting 10 students for the summer program and for the 2014-2015 school year.

For more information contact Les Fredette at 860-633-2604.
