About Us

Dyslexia and other learning disabilities impact 1 in 5 children. Unfortunately, most schools lack the resources to help these students, and parents struggle to find effective yet convenient treatment.

The Lexercise Story

Lexercise was founded in 2008 to solve these problems. We combine the latest in technology with the structured literacy (aka Orton-Gillingham) approach, which has been validated by decades of research. We’re a team of passionate therapists, technologists, and business people united by this shared goal. Together we’ve built a platform that empowers children to improve their reading, writing, and spelling through online therapy from literacy experts combined with daily practice activities. We envision a future where structured literacy is available to all children around the world, and we hope you’ll join us on this mission.
