I understand the challenges that Dyslexic students have. They are often the brightest students/adults, but have challenges and frustration. I am currently working with several dyslexic students, and I have seen tremendous growth, and improvement in their confidence level, and ability to accomplish more. I am very patient and find ways to engage them to learn, at their own pace. Often, I will reward them, if I observe a milestone that has been reached. Having studied how people learn languages gives me the edge with dyslexic students, because I can observe what they do, and work to impro [more]

Have FUN and LEARN with a highly experienced Reading Specialist!

To work more effectively with my struggling students, who were non-readers in 3rd and 4th grade, I spent a year receiving certification in the WILSON Reading System. This is a very structured, scripted 10-step multi-sensory approach to the acquisition of sound - symbol relationships. Through the manipulation of sound cards and tiles, blending of sounds, recognizing the patterns in our language, reading, writing and understanding of the written word, students become motivated readers through their investment in their own learning. They enjoy the repetition of the steps and learn to depend on th [more]
