Arnold Reading Clinic

child reading

The Arnold Reading Center was founded by Al Arnold, M.S. and Dan Gustafson, Ph.D. It relies on a science-based foundation for helping struggling readers.

Mr. Arnold is retiring, so Dean Foundation wants to carry on his excellent work at the center, which has helped so many young people who suffer from a variety of reading disabilities in our community.

Please donate now to help us continue this excellent program, needed by so many students in our community.
