Home Educator and Multi-sensory Literacy Practitioner
“Having trained as a multi-sensory remedial language therapist, I have enjoyed helping those with Learning Differences to become literate members of society. You may be familiar with the Orton-Gillingham approach which has been touted as the ‘gold standard’ for literacy remediation and repatterns the brain (fMRI studies). My training has been supervised by a Fellow of the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators. Each therapy session is 1:1, multi-sensory and individualized. Therapy is available for the following language problems: *Phonemic Awareness *Encoding *Decoding *Fluency *Comprehension *Vocabulary *Handwriting *Composition. For some client profiles, my services are tax deductible. All Learning Differences are welcome.”
