“The Antigua and Barbuda Centre for Dyslexia Awareness (ABCDA) would like to thank Wishing Well Inc. Donations such as these help ensure that children with learning difficulties in our community have access to the specialized educational support that they need. They make an enormous contribution to the lives of children by giving them an opportunity to achieve, excel and learn.
A number of our families are simply unable to afford the cost of literacy services and many schools are without adequate support. Without generous donations such as these, many children would simply go without and fall through the cracks. With early identification and intervention our children can learn successful strategies to cope with dyslexia and achieve their full potential.” Dr. Cynthia Crump Educator for Life / Lead, EMARGE Educational Consultants

We hope that other (corporate) sponsors will come forward to assist with the crucial services that are provided at the Centre.”
