Mission

Payne Education Center trains teachers to prevent reading difficulties in children and to remediate dyslexia, while serving as a resource and referral center.

Background

Payne Education Center was founded in 1984 through a generous endowment from Katheryne B. Payne to raise awareness of the reading condition of dyslexia and its challenges, and to improve the diagnosis and reading remediation of Oklahomans with dyslexia. Dyslexia is a neurological condition characterized by difficulties with accurate word recognition as well as poor spelling and decoding abilities.

To address the learning needs of children at-risk for reading success and with dyslexia, Payne Education Center provides teachers with systematic, sequential, and explicit instruction in the teaching methods of Multisensory Structured Language reading instruction that are based on the science of reading success. Teachers trained in this method are better equipped to teach children to read. Students taught by Payne trained teachers are empowered to become successful in reading, writing, and spelling. Multisensory Structured Language reading instruction is not only effective with struggling readers, but all students, allowing schools to offer reading instruction that works for all learners. Payne offers teachers research-based, “hands-on” strategies to meet the needs of every student — from low performing to gifted. 
 
Quick Facts:
  • Payne has been providing quality, professional training development in reading for teachers for over 32 years.
  • Since 1984, Payne has trained more than 18,000 teachers in Multisensory Structured Language reading instruction methods. Multisensory education incorporates the three learning pathways which are: auditory, kinesthetic, and visual.
  • Payne is the only teacher training center in Oklahoma accredited by the International Multisensory Structured Language Education Council.
Payne Education Center Programs:
  • Teacher Professional Development in Classroom and Therapy Reading Instruction: available for Pre-K to 6th grade teachers with a primary focus on phonological awareness, letter recognition, spelling, vocabulary, grammar, and written composition.
  • Volunteer Tutor Training: Members of the community engage in a 4-hour training, giving them the necessary tools to provide tutoring and practice in reading proficiency for learners of all ages. To date, Payne has trained 360+ tutors in this powerful community-based program.

 

Impact
Needs
  1. Financial support of to conduct research-based efficacy studies in schools or classrooms where teachers have received Payne training. $50,000 would cover researcher and associated implementation costs over 2-3 years.
  2. Scholarships and financial support to help pay the cost of training teachers and marketing Payne teacher training programs is needed. $100,000 annually would allow Payne to reach a much larger audience, provide training for teachers in schools whose budgets have been decimated by severe budget cuts, and make training available to teachers who are outside of the public school system.
  3. Scholarships and financial support for the Volunteer Tutor Training program would allow Payne to extend its marketing reach and train more community reading tutors who empower struggling students to catch up and succeed. $10,000 would allow Payne to increase course sizes with subsidized pricing for those in need and increased advertising.
  4. Financial support in the amount of $50,000 for a new/updated website.
  5. Donated advertising to allow Payne to extend its reach into the community.
 
CEO/Executive Director Statement
Those associated with Payne Education Center believe in its vision:
 
Every child in Oklahoma will be successful in reading, writing, and spelling. This vision becomes a reality by training teachers to be highly skilled teachers of reading, reaching every beginning and struggling reader in Oklahoma.
No child should struggle to read.
