THRIVE is a public school alternate program designed to enable kids with learning disabilities to build skills and experience success.

This website facilitates our work and offers the very best materials we've created for free to anyone who shares similar goals — no strings attached!

Take a look at our free Handwriting Alphabet poster. It fits nicely in a binder and looks great on a wall.

This is just one of several hundred pages and resources for learning handwriting that are available for free on this site.

Created by the California chapter of Decoding Dyslexia, this little video outlines why it's critical that we identify and support kids who are beginning to show signs of reading failure.

If you were around THRIVE last year, you may remember meeting Cathie McMillan at the Movie Night we held. She shared the film The Big Picture and told us a bit about her work starting a Decoding Dyslexia chapter here in BC.

Together with students from Sheridan College in Ontario, Cathie and her team are now working on a Canadian dyslexia-awareness video of their own. I'll post it as soon as it's ready to go!
