I am a very motivated person to help people become proficient in reading and able to decode words. I have raised a son who has the learning disability of dyslexia. In order to learn the best style of teaching for him, I did my own research of dyslexia, went to seminars put on by the Meninger Hospital, at that time it was in Topeka, it is now in Texas, and through a lot of blood, sweat and tears learned how to help him. By the time he got to high school, he was able to do his homework by himself. He had an IEP every year from the time he was in 2nd grade up until he was a sophomore in high school and was able to do his studies keeping a grade point average never lower than 3.0. Very few people get out of the Resource Room once they are identified for Special Education. Because of seeing the torment he went through to get through anything to do with language and also seeing how being dyslexic has affected every aspect of his being, I have continued to learn about dyslexia. I have a wonderful program that is a ten-level program based on the Orton-Gillingham system, which is the only type of system that will help dyslexics. The wonderful thing about this program is that it helps anyone who is needing to become more proficient with the English language from phonemic awareness all the way up to learning Greek and Latin roots. I have such a passion for reading and feel that in this country there are far too many people graduating from high school that have a problem with reading and language skills; many that have never been identified or addressed in their formal education. I just want to help as many people as I can learn to read well and become proficient in the English language.
