My name is Kim, I have taught special needs students with a variety of disabilities for over 24 years. I specialize in reading and ELA. It's important that learning be an enjoyable process, and my approach is individualized to meet the students personality and learning style.

I am certified in Orton-Gillingham, Wilson, Project READ, and the Linda Mood Bell reading programs. I am also certified in the EmPOWER writing program. I take a multisensory approach to leaning. This involves movement brakes, and using sensory tools such as hand fidgets, mouth tools,(candy or gum to help keep students alert and focused), and Brain Gym, which are specific movements that help both sides of the brain work together with more automoticity.

I enjoy working with kids of all ages and am still in touch with many parents and students I have worked with long after they have graduated.
