Founded in 1966, Key School and Training Center began as an after-school and summer program that focused on tutoring students with dyslexia. The founders, Mary Ann Key and Mildred Gardner, through encouragement and support from Dr. John M. Richardson, a prominent Fort Worth pediatrician, designed the individualized program on the training they received at Scottish Rite Hospital for Children`s Language Therapy program. As word spread of this new, specialized way of teaching, demand exceeded what was offered in the summer program.
To meet this need, a traditional nine-month school was added. Key School gained its nonprofit status in 2005 and has served over 8,000 students with language-based learning differences such as dyslexia. In 2018, the organization expanded to include a dyslexia therapy training program and community outreach services. With a bright outlook for the future, Key School and Training Center successfully completed a capital campaign that allowed for the renovation of a new facility. The school and training center was relocated to the John M. RichardsonCampus in September 2021, which provided opportunities for school growth and expansion of training and professional development services.
ABOUT OUR SCHOOL
Since 1966, Key School has pioneered the way in the Fort Worth area by serving students with learning differences and their families. Educators, therapists, and administrators work to build self-esteem and equip students with the tools they need to succeed academically, emotionally, and socially. Learning differences are not a "one size fits all," and many students are impacted by more than one learning challenge.
The Key School admissions team works closely with families to determine the needs of the whole child, considering both academic and social-emotional needs. Key School`s goal is to support students in reaching their highest potential.
We are a STRONG FIT for the following learning differences:
- Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
- Language-based Learning Disabilities
- Learning Challenges Related to Processing Speed & Working Memory
- Autism Spectrum Disorder Level I
- Challenges with Social/Emotional Learning
