I am an Academy of Orton Gillingham practitioner with an M.Ed in Literacy who will work with your child to improve encoding, decoding, phonemic awareness, reading comprehension and fluency. I have 16+ years of experience as a Resource Specialist in the field of Special Education and have instructed students with a range of learning challenges. I have successfully improved outcomes for students with dyslexia, autism, ADHD, and auditory processing to name a few. Together, your child and I will engage in multisensory strategies and learning activities to build and stretch decoding and encoding skills, vocabulary and automaticity with reading. Using a spiral learning plan I create systematic and ongoing opportunities to revisit learned skills for long-term retention as new phonetic concepts are introduced. My instruction is skill- and strategy-driven while incorporating novelty and interest to maintain the engagement of my students.
