The mission of the Bradford Dunn Institute is to help all children with learning differences be successful in school and in life by providing training for teachers, services for students and resources for families and the community. We are particularly interested in serving children identified as at risk. We provide summer and after school programs for students in elementary and middle school and training for teachers. The Institute was founded in 1999.
The Dunn Institute, founded in 1999, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping all children with learning differences be successful in school and in life by providing training for teachers, services for students and resources for families and the community. In 2004, Dunn shifted its strategic vision from serving students with diagnosed learning differences to an 'all kids' agenda -- with a focus on how programs could be effectively implemented in public school settings. The complicated student profiles presented in public schools demonstrated how learning differences are inextricably linked to issues of ELL and poverty, preventing 'clean' diagnoses of disability. Consequently, the target audience for Dunn Institute programs became general classroom teachers and all students below level in literacy development. To reach this audience, the Dunn Institute, with the support of Hasbro, Inc., created the Hasbro Center for Teaching Excellence in April 2006.
