I retain a Lifetime Standard Elementary Teaching Credential K-8. My experience is as a classroom teacher. As a Team Teacher, I have been able to work specifically with Special Needs students who were mainstreamed into my classroom, and I had great success at building skills and confidence so that they could function well in relation to their classmates. A number of these students had varying degrees of dyslexia, and I found that I was able to help them to decode and communicate at or above grade level over time. I've had a good deal of success in helping those students to further their skills in reading and writing so that they gained overall confidence as learners.
Knowing that every child can learn and that overcoming a period of dyslexia has to do with patient training in perception is an important key to success.
