Retired Learning Disabilities Teacher

I am currently certified as a special educator for children/youth with learning disabilities in New York and Utah. Almost all of my teaching experiences have been with children struggling with learning to read. Because of my early training in learning disabilities, I look first for a student's learning strengths, then whatever issues may be holding him/her back from succeeding. As a hands-on learner I struggled learning to read trying to memorize words visually and orally in elementary school. Consequently, when a child can't read, I will look to understand why and teach to that child's streng [more]

Professional / Individualized Lessons / Positive Experiences

The student who suffers from Dyslexia does not proceed from left to right in order to read. That student may "reverse" letters while reading and writing. Remedial activities include using a dot (.) under the beginning letter of a word and a line (.____) connected to the dot to help the student to "track" the letters and to read the word, thus extracting meaning. My training for how to work with students who have dyslexia includes the work that was required in my Masters' Degree program in Special Education with an emphasis in "Learning Disabilities" 1974 - 1979. During that period, I w [more]

Specialized Instruction for Students with disabilities

I have been a special education multi-categorical teacher for 25 years and have taught students with many disabilities, including many of whom have dyslexia. I have learned various ways to teach reading so that students can retrain their brains. One way is by using the Great Leaps Reading Program which increases fluency and teaches the brain to recognize how to see various vowel and consonant combinations through repetition. Hello, My name is Cheri. I have a Master's Degree in Education, a Bachelor's Degree in Vocational Rehabilitation and Special Education, a Fine Art Minor, and am certifi [more]

PreK - Elementary Reading, Math, Handwriting, Study Skills

I taught in a Reading Clinic, a group of sixth graders who read at a second grade level. I found books that met both their interest level and reading level. I planned lessons that activated their various sensory avenues and was very successful. I have also learned how to use Brain Gym to activate both sides of the brain. They are very simple exercises and take very little time to do, such as Lazy 8's, cross crawl, Brain Buttons, and so forth. I also utilize the Learning Breakthrough Program from Balametrics, Inc. and have a CD and instructional booklet for "Catch a Brain Wave Fitness Fun. [more]

Expereinced Special Education Teacher

In my master's program I was taught strategies that address dysgraphia and dyscalculia. I understand that dyslexia is a term that can encompass many types of learning barriers. It is important to teach strategies that help these students overcome the barriers and work with their strengths and that may involve the use of technology. I am currently a special education teacher in the Janesville School District. I am certified Cross Categorical and serve as a case manager to all types of students. I have experience with Intellectual Disabilities, Learning Disabilities and Emotional/Behavior Disord [more]

Kind tutor who wants to make learning fun!

I have a decade of experience teaching children with various learning disabilities, including dyslexia, how to read. I have lots of fun with the children breaking down the sounds and learn the "rules" of reading. I've been using letter tiles for about 5 years now. I've also attended online trainings about dyslexia and the Orton-Gillingham approach. I have been successfully using a curriculum based on this approach with a middle school student. Gradually, we have seen her reduce word guessing and increase her decoding skills. [more]
