Who am I and why did I open this center?
I am a dyslexia consultant, therapist and evaluator. As
a teacher with over 8 years' experience in the classroom, I hold licenses to
teach special education with a certification in learning disabilities as well
as a Master's degree in Counseling. I have experience working in all of
my licensure areas. I am currently working on my masters degree in Dyslexia Therapy.
I am qualified to evaluate dyslexia. By opening this
center and hiring additional staff, I hope to increase the number of people
we can offer therapy to with Orton-Gillingham based methods. You can contact us for an appointment at 228-324-3244 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
At Reading Remedy, we use scientifically researched methods to teach reading, spelling, grammar and composition. Orton-Gilliningham methods have extensive research showing that a child's brain structure can be enhanced through these methods. A list of these research articles will be available on the Resource Page. A child's entire future can be changed by teaching them to read, write, and spell.
There was only a definition by
exclusion for dyslexia before the 1980's when the research began by the
National Institutes of Health. A child was said to have dyslexia if it could
NOT be explained by low intelligence, a deficit in eyesight or hearing, poor
education or any other problem. Parents, teachers and researchers did
not find this definition acceptable so this is the definition in use
Dyslexia is condition, which is
inherited that makes it extremely difficult to read, write and spell despite
having at least average intelligence. It is unexpected when considered with a child's other abilities.
