Rawson Saunders School, proudly celebrates its 25th anniversary this school year. Rawson Saunders was established in 1997 by a small group of educators and parents determined to fill the need for a new, innovative school in which dyslexic students could thrive.
Now led by Head of School Laura Steinbach, M.S.Ed., the school has grown from an organization serving 22 students in 1997 to one serving more than 200 in 2022 that attracts students and teachers from all over the country. “All of us at Rawson Saunders take great pride in the number of lives we’ve changed since our founding,” said Steinbach. “What we do at Rawson Saunders is truly transformational.”
The award-winning, non-profit school and institute have both grown to become internationally-recognized models for dyslexia education and teacher training. Rawson Saunders’ vision is now to rewrite the future of dyslexia education. “Facing limited space and ever-increasing demand, our goal is to expand our capacity to serve the greater Austin community and beyond,” Steinbach said. “We look forward to building on 25 years of extraordinary.”
