Learning Ally is a national non profit organization dedicated to empowering students who are dyslexic, blind and visually impaired. It provides an audio library of over 80,000 books, and a network of support to students, teachers and parents to close the learning gap for students with print disabilities. Learning Ally benefits from thousands of volunteers and donors across the U.S. who help fund, record and process the educational materials which learners of all ages rely on to achieve academic and professional success.
The David Reznick Foundation has partnered with the ROSS Companies/Madison-Hyattsville, LLC, which owns and manages Overlook Apartments, a LIHTC apartment complex in Hyattsville, MD. With this grant, the Foundation is assisting the three public schools attended by the children of Overlook Apartments by providing institutional memberships to the Learning Ally program.
The Foundation is also working with Learning Ally , the Superintendent and School Board, and the schools to facilitate the provision of services to the local Elementary, Middle and High Schools. The Reznick Foundation identifies gaps in capacity or additional needs to facilitate implementation of the services, and will procure any additional materials needed to ensure the success of the Learning Ally program at these schools.
