Dyslexia Resources Headed to the Coast

The City of Ocean Springs is one step closer to providing Gulf Coast resources for students with dyslexia.
Ocean Springs Mayor Connie Moran and the board of aldermen called a special meeting this evening to authorize a lease agreement with Dynamic Dyslexia Design, also known as the 3D School that operates out of Petal, Mississippi.
The lease would allow the program to set up classrooms inside Taconi Elementary School in Ocean Springs, saving dozens of Gulf Coast families money and time.
Currently 3D is the only special purpose school in the state to accept children with dyslexia. Ocean Springs Ward 1 Alderman John Gill said, “They showed us some examples. The 3D program instructor showed us some examples where a kid goes from an average of a D student to an A student. It’s just a wonderful program.”
The mayor, city attorney, and the 3D Program will draft a lease agreement and present it to the rest of the board during the first meeting of February. City officials hope to have dyslexic students in the new classrooms within the next 30 days.
