We’d love to help your child get started on their journey to success!
The school-based ReadingCorps program is offered to K-8 students across the four public school districts in Knott, Leslie, and Perry Counties. Students receive 30 minutes of daily, targeted intervention using the Orton-Gillingham approach. To learn whether this program is offered at your child’s school, contact the principal or call our team.
For 15 weeks in the fall and spring semesters, the Settlement offers one-on-one after-school tutoring one night each week. The program is offered at multiple sites throughout Eastern Kentucky and virtually using our distance learning platform. Enrollment is open for the coming semester. Contact us today!
SUMMER TUTORING PROGRAM
The Summer Tutoring Program is an intensive, five-week program that occurs on campus and virtually. Each day students receive 2 hours of individualized reading intervention, two hours of small-group math instruction, two hours of writing and keyboarding, and daily arts activities.
If your child is experiencing difficulties reading, they may have one or more indicators of dyslexia. Our staff offers a monthly dyslexia screening on our campus to families to assess students and to make referrals for other programs and services. Space is limited each month, so register early.
IMAGINATION LIBRARY OF KNOTT COUNTY
The Imagination Library of Knott County, offered in partnership with the Dollywood Foundation, is dedicated to inspiring a love of reading by gifting a book per month, free of charge, to children from birth to age five. Enroll your child or learn how to give the gift of reading!
Volunteer to tutor!
Don’t miss this opportunity to change lives in Central Appalachia. You can be one of a community of DAR members from across the country helping a child with learning differences overcome the reading struggles they have faced due to their learning difference.
Over the 15-week program, you will be at the forefront of Hindman Settlement School’s dyslexia intervention program, working with kids after school for one hour, twice per week.
GIVE A GIFT, CHANGE A LIFE
More than 90% of families require financial assistance to participate in our intervention services and, thanks to the generous support of donors and friends, no child is ever denied service.

Training For Educators
Learning is a lifelong initiative. At Hindman Settlement School, we offer customized staff development training designed to meet your school system’s needs. The programs we offer include:
- A Dyslexia Overview
Educators and Dyslexia–What You Should Know
Reading Building Blocks for Dyslexic Students
- How to Help Dyslexic Students Succeed in Your Classroom
- Dyslexia and the Young Reader
- Classroom Management for Dyslexic Students
- Implementing Broad Service Approaches for Your School–The Hindman Settlement School Model
Certain workshops require broader blocks of time than others. It’s important to keep in mind that brief workshops provide excellent overviews and introductions into a program, but they are usually insufficient for creating an implementation plan. If your goal is to develop a school-wide plan, we recommend one of our longer workshops.
