Barb Rounds, the founder and owner of Thriving Minds, has a deep-seated passion for helping people with dyslexia find the right learning path for them. Having worked as a reading interventionist and having personally experienced aiding her son through his struggles with reading and writing, she realized the need for dyslexia services in the area and sought out certification from the Orton Gillingham Program.

Thriving Minds serves the unique needs of three-dimensional learners in all aspects of development utilizing creativity, tactile, and kinesthetic methods to fit each students learning style.
