A re-opening reception was held at The Reading Clinic in Serpentine Road, Hamilton, last night to celebrate its facility expansion and increased services to the community following the completion of a capital project funded by the Argus Group, Aspen Bermuda Limited and an anonymous foundation. The expanded facility was formally opened in a ribbon-cutting ceremony by Shkysi Cummings, President of the Board of Director, The Reading Clinic; Alison Hill, CEO, The Argus Group; The Hon. Dame Jennifer Smith, DBE, JP, DHumL, MP, Minister of Education; and Kirk Kitson, Son of Elizabeth Kitson – Founder & Trustee. The capital donors funded the creation of three additional rooms, as well as a new reception area, at The Reading Clinic enabling it to reach more individuals and provide greater support for children who learn differently.

The Reading Clinic is a registered charity that promotes literacy and numeracy through research-based practices designed to empower children in Bermuda with dyslexia and other learning difficulties. It is estimated that one in every five children has a learning difficulty. This year, The Reading Clinic will deliver over 4,000 one-on-one reading lessons, over 1,600 one-on-one math lessons, 200 hours of diagnostic assessments and more than 50 hours of workshops for educators and parents.
