Texthelp and Don Johnston Inc. join forces to help students achieve more

We support equality and inclusion of all people, especially individuals with dyslexia and other learning needs. We create assistive technology to help students meet the challenges of reading, writing and math. Together, we will lead the way in assistive technology tools for classrooms and workplace. Our collective goal is to help one billion people across the world by 2030.

Tools for increased confidence, productivity and success

One in ten people have dyslexia, and in the USA, 12% of students are in special education. 15% of children at school are learning their 2nd language, and the average reading age in the USA is 7th to 8th grade.
