Class Experience

Students with dyslexia primarily use one part of their brain to process reading.  This is unlike efficient readers who use at least three areas of the brain to process their reading.  Through a multi-sensory process, dyslexic readers can actually train their brain to read more efficiently.  They can learn to process words quicker and develop improved reading fluency and comprehension.  Of course this process takes a lot of practice and time.  With this short course, readers will develop an understanding of how to more efficiently read 4 types of multi-syllable words.  Often students will begin to see a difference after 4 sessions of direct reading instruction.
I am dyslexic.  I struggled with reading until my second year of college when I was identified as having dyslexia.  Thankfully, my college offered reading improvement courses which improved my GPA from a 2.6 to a 4.0 in 1 year.  I was so excited about my experiences in college, that I changed my major to special education and earned my degree.  I taught in the public schools for 19 years and continued my personal education earning a masters degree and then a PhD in 2015.  Each of my degrees are in education which is my passion.  I now work with people of all ages who have dyslexia.  I love my dyslexic brain - it was very difficult to improve my reading and spelling, but the problem solving skills of a dyslexic are amazing!  I want to help your child with dyslexia realize their potential.  
Students will be encouraged to read each day.
