Our team is comprised of a variety of professionals:
- Speech-language therapists
- Speech-language clinicians
- Occupational therapists
We specialize in:
- One-on-one therapy
- Intensive interventions
- Interdisciplinary treatment
- Customized programs
Our methodology delivers one-on-one, intensive interventions for dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities for children and young adults.
Our treatment approach differs from any other program in its medically-based, scientifically-proven interdisciplinary approach, which does not simply teach a skill or address any particular academic challenge in a vacuum, but instead creates new neuronal connections, and maps new neural pathways in the brain to allow for life-long learning across the board.
Each treatment plan is customized to address the individual’s own personal needs. This medically-based, scientifically-proven approach leads to robust and lasting results.

At Wellington-Alexander Center we provide thorough assessment services to determine the language deficits that need to be treated. Through these assessments we are able to diagnose dyslexia, as well as other language-based learning disabilities.
Our intensive intervention services can assist with a variety of language/learning disabilities. Our main focus is the treatment of dyslexia. However, language learning can be affected by a variety of things and can manifest in a variety of ways.
Children with dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities commonly have co-existing challenges with sensorimotor skills, and/or attention. Our program utilizes a transdisciplinary approach that allows the professionals to work collaboratively to address all the needs of the individual as a whole and not just in bits and pieces.
Wellington-Alexander Center goes to the root of an individual’s reading or language challenges – creating and strengthening the areas of the brain required for long-term, evidenced-based improvement. Practicing phonics and reading with a tutor or specialist will address the symptoms of poor reading and phonics, but the underlying brain processes will remain weak and result in ongoing struggles.
Our treatment services include intensive intervention for dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities, occupational therapy / sensorimotor therapy, and treatment of articulation disorders. When needed, we can also provide psychological services to determine needs for patients who also have ADHD or other attention related issues.
In addition, we have launched a preschool early intervention initiative for early recognition, diagnosis and treatment of dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities.
Beginning the process is simple.

Wellington-Alexander Center offers a FREE one-hour consultation for any parent or guardian to come learn more about what we do to determine if our program is the best fit for your child’s needs. You can request your free consultation here online, or feel free to call us to schedule your appointment.
We will collect some preliminary information from you as background for the consultation, and request copies of any reports or data you may have from prior testing. If you have conducted no prior testing, we can provide guidance for what testing is recommended.
Wellington-Alexander Center is proud to offer all-inclusive neurodevelopmental screening, assessment and treatment for dyslexia and other language-based learning disorders.
Depending upon your child’s personal and individual needs, we may recommend assessments to be conducted at our center to determine a diagnosis of dyslexia or other language-based learning disabilities. However, should there be a need for evaluation to determine potential diagnoses outside of our specialty, we can make recommendations or offer referrals.
After a review of test results, we will recommend next steps for treatment, and develop an individualized treatment plan for each specific patient’s needs.
