What is the Literacy Task Force?
Who We Are
The Literacy Task Force of Northern Wisconsin (LTF-NW) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping families and individuals in north central Wisconsin who struggle with reading and spelling. We are parents, educators and concerned citizens. LTF-NW partners with the Wisconsin Branch of the International Dyslexia Association (WIBIDA), Wisconsin Literacy, Inc., American Association of University Women (AAUW) and Nicolet Area Technical College.
What We Do

- We train reading tutors using scientifically researched methods. Our teaching starts at a person’s reading and spelling level and takes a systematic approach.
- We give talks about literacy to area agencies, organizations, and schools.
- We raise money for training scholarships and resource materials.
