The later in life people get help with learning deficits, the harder it is to correct them. 

That's why so much attention is lavished on Head Start and similar programs. 

The Oregon Community Foundation provides attention and money to such programs, in an effort to make sure all Oregonians have a shot at a good education and the good life that can result.  Mary Louise McClintock heads the education programs at OCF; she details their goals and achievements.
