Opening an office for dyslexia

Hello!  My name is Lavaunda Roundtree.  I am an academic therapist and public school teacher.  I'm sure some of you are wondering what the heck an academic therapist is.  An academic therapist teaches reading to those with dyslexia or who struggle with reading. 

After work, I drive to the homes of my clients and provide instruction.  I see 2 to 3 students each day and usually get home around 10pm each night.  With that being said, I am happy to say that I am FINALLY opening an office so that I can be in one location! 

Because specialized instruction is required to teach struggling readers, specialized equipment is also necessary.  Getting specialized equipment is where I need help.  I am in need of the adjustable table pictured below:
 

The cost of the table is $450 plus tax and shipping.  In addition, I would like to purchase a multisensory reading comprehension kit that supports students who can read but struggle with understanding what they read.  The Story Grammar Marker, Theme Maker, Braidy the Story Braid Kit, and Critical Thinking Triangle sets  cost $609.80 plus tax and shipping. 

I am extremely happy that I am able to provide this service and improve the quality of life for my clients.  I will continue to keep everyone updated on the progress that is made.  If more money is raised it will go toward a multisensory writing class in the summer.

Thank you in advance for your support!
