As a CALT and Licensed Dyslexia Therapist with 12 + years of experience, my focus is positive partnering with dyslexic students to help them build fundamental literacy skills. Developing a comfortable relationship with each person to encourage his/her self-confidence is both essential and rewarding. Each student has unique strengths and deficits which require growth and improvement. To address these, I use proven, highly acknowledged, engaging and multi-sensory approaches to address core reading fluency and comprehension, vocabulary, grammar, spelling, composition and learning strategies in a sequential, structured progression.
