Ellen, Masters in Special Education, great with kids and adults

Two of these programs are the Lindamood Seeing Stars Program and the Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing Program for Reading, Spelling, and Speech. The Lindamood Seeing Stars Program was designed to develop symbol imagery and apply that sensory function to enhance sight word recogn [more]

Spunky Tutor - Ready for All Needs

Although the core difficulty lies in reading words because of a difficulty in processing and manipulating sounds, some students with dyslexia are able to learn early reading and spelling tasks, However the dyslexic student encounters difficulties when the more challenging problems of complex language skills, such as grammar, textbook material and essay reading and writing are required. I have taught dyslexic students in county schools for a number of years, [more]

Get the quality of a certified teacher in the comfort of your home!

Over the years as a teacher, I have worked with several students with Dyslexia. I have finally found a program that WORKS!

Whether you are 5 years old or 50, it is never too late to develop reading and phonics skills through typing! Coupled with a research-based reading progra [more]
