Every summer, The Carnegie Center hosts a program for kids who have characteristics of dyslexia. A diagnosis is not required. It is for three weeks, in the mornings, Monday-Friday in July. We host a ‘screening’ for children who do not have a diagnosis usually in late April/early May. Visit the Idea: Center for Excellence to learn more and register.


Idea: Center for Excellence is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping school teachers and administrators in identification and remediation of students who suffer from Dyslexia in Kentucky.  The goal of IDEA is to have training programs to help facilitate education about Dyslexia and how to cope with children with it.

Please call Janet Nickels at 606-785-0761 with questions.

We hope to see you soon at the Carnegie Center, home to writers, lifelong learners, & the Kentucky Writers Hall of Fame.
