Serving those in Need
However I can!
Dyslexia impacts people in varying degrees, so symptoms may differ from one child to another. Generally, symptoms show up as problems with accuracy and fluency in reading and spelling. But in some cases, dyslexia can impact writing, math and language, too.
As with many learning disabilities, there are differing opinions on how to best treat and instruct those with dyslexia. Early detection and evaluation to determine specific needs and appropriate treatment can certainly improve success.
Dyslexia is treated using specific educational approaches and techniques. It has been my experience that The Orton-Gillingham Approach is one of the most effective ways to teach struggling readers. Therefore, the services and resources I provide are all based on Orton-Gillingham principles.

Many dyslexic individuals think "outside of the box" and create new business opportunities. Famous dyslexics like Willard Wigan, space physicist Dr. Dave McComas and Ikea founder Ingvar Kamprad did just that. The diagnosis of dyslexia can be a blessing in disguise!
Principal investigator, NASA IBEX Space Mission Dave McComas says, "You need people with all different kinds of skills...If you've got it, go with it. Let dyslexia set you free."
