Why: Key School and Training Center has served over 8,000 students since it began in 1966. Statistics show that one in five students has a language-based learning disability. Dyslexia is the most common of the language-based learning disabilities.
History: Founded in 1966, Key School began as an after-school and summer program that focused on tutoring students with dyslexia. The founders, Mary Ann Key and Mildred Gardner, through encouragement and support from Dr. John M. Richardson, designed the individualized program on the training they received at Texas Scottish Rite for Children’s Language Therapy program. Recognizing the community need to expand services beyond the school and summer program, Key expanded in 2018 and began a dyslexia therapy training program and outreach services while continuing Key School’s exceptional education program. In September of 2021, the school and training center was relocated to the John M. Richardson Campus. This campus will allow the Key School and Training Center to expand existing services through training and professional development for teachers, administrators, and parents.
