KNOWLEDGE IS THE FIRST STEP TOWARD THE ABILITY TO

Overcome

ABOUT ME

I am a former classroom teacher (B.A., Elementary Education) with a passion to equip struggling readers for academic success through Orton-Gillingham phonological support. I am a trained Special Education Advocate for families and students with learning differences, including 504 and IEP needs. Assistance with the identification of relevant testing needs and referrals for diagnosis of a suspected learning disability.  I am currently in the process of getting Board Certified as an Educational Advocate, BCEA.  I also serve on the Advisory Board for the National Special Education Advocacy Institute. I will work to ensure school implementation of academic support, accommodations and modifications.

 

I am a dyslexic coach, trained in Wilson Reading System, Alphabetic Phonics, Orton-Gillingham & Read Naturally. 

I am also the parent of a gifted Dyslexic, now a college graduate, who utilized academic accommodations. I feel that the ten year journey to secure a diagnosis for my then-Honor Roll son has given me a personal perspective to coach parents as advocates for children with learning differences. Equipping students to reach their academic potential is an attainable goal that can be reached through evidence-based Orton-Gillingham intervention and effective 504 or Individual Educational Plans (IEPs).
