Who am I and why did I open this center?


I am a dyslexia consultant, tutor 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 qualified to evaluate and diagnose dyslexia and provide a written report for parents and schools. By opening this center and hiring additional staff, I hope to increase the number of people we tutor who will benefit by learning the Barton Reading & Spelling System.  You can contact us for an appointment at
228-324-3244  or mbarksdale@reading-remedy.com.

 

The Barton Reading & Spelling System is a one-on-one tutoring system that will greatly improve the spelling, reading, and writing skills of children, teenagers or adults who struggle due to dyslexia or a learning disability.  You can change their entire future by teaching them to read, write, and spell. Further information is available at www.bartonreading.com 
 

The Barton System is an Orton-Gillingham influenced reading program that is approved by the California Department of Education, supported by independent scientific research and meets the No Child Left Behind requirements. All students are tutored using the Barton System, a research based and proven to increase reading through mid-9th grade by the end of the program.

 

 

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 today.  

 

Dyslexia is condition, which is inherited that makes it extremely difficult to read, write and spell despite having at least average intelligence.
