Dyslexia

My work in dyslexia remediation includes bilateral integration, spatial organization, directional awareness, multi-sensory reading and spelling techniques, and visual and auditory discrimination.

Reading

When tutoring a student in reading, I always begin at a level that is comfortable for that student and gradually increase the difficulty as the student improves.I use a multi-sensory approach to reading, and support it with activities that strengthen the basic visual and auditory processing skills.
One technique I use is Neurological Impress Reading, which involves reading aloud together while tracking the words with our fingers, deliberately pausing at commas and stopping at ending punctuation. This approach eases frustration for reluctant readers, because the flow of reading isn't interrupted. Sight word recognition improves as the student is looking at each word while hearing it.This technique is also a great way to get the student used to reading with expression in the voice because he or she is hearing my different inflections as we read.
I also use phonics books such as EASING INTO READING, THE AUDITORY PHONICS PROGRAM, PROGRAMMED PHONICS,or MEGAWORDS. Students learn to blend sounds and separate longer words into syllables.
For comprehension, some of the materials I use include McGraw Hill Master Skills series,Edupress practice cards (Reading for Detail, Main Idea,and Predicting Outcomes),and FAMOUS PEOPLE, PLACES, & EVENTS. The student reads a passage and answers questions about it, or tells back what was read in his or her own words. I encourage and guide the student to make mental pictures while reading.
For young students, I usually include games in my sessions, which help keep students interested. Bingo games using sight words that stress vowel sounds and consonant blends are favorites.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
