A Method that Works
Why Dyslexia Success?
Dyslexia Success provides an answer to parents who are looking for help with their student’s struggles with dyslexia. Approximately 10% - 20% of the population has dyslexia, and this learning difference can be remediated with the Orton-Gillinghan approach.
What I offer
I offer 1:1 tutoring and use specific materials to build your student’s confidence. I create and use explicit, diagnostic, Orton-Gillingham, multi-sensory lessons for students of all ages. You do NOT have to be diagnosed with dyslexia for tutoring. This method helps all struggling readers!
For younger students, I create lessons using multi-sensory techniques to engage your student and to enhance his/her knowledge of phonics, syllable patterns, and the etymology of words to promote decoding, word recognition, and fluency. I also use decodable texts for practice and to promote fluency.
For older students, I offer lessons that exercise students’ knowledge of words while enhancing their fluency and automaticity while reading. Lessons for older students are age appropriate and are not considered "elementary". I have worked with many older students, including high school seniors. It is never too late to start remediation for dyslexia!!
I also serve as an advocate for students in obtaining 504 plans for accommodation in school.
Beyond high school
I am also affiliated with The Test Experts, a test prep company. I understand ACT/SAT test prep for students with dyslexia as well as the process of obtaining accommodations for the ACT and SAT.
