I am qualified in programs to help students with reading weaknesses, weak cognitive skills, auditory processing problems, attention problems, and dyslexia. I am certified in programs based on current brain research, specifically regarding the neuroplasticity of the brain. Simply put... the brain can make new and lasting connections based on the intensity and duration of specific program.

I have worked with students with dyslexia, hyperlexia, central auditory processing disorder, reading comprehension problems,
autism, and ADHD. I am certified in Tomatis Method sound therapy, Fast Forword, Neurofeedback Therapy, Lindamood-Bell learning programs, Cogmed, Interactive Metronome and Soar Study Skills Program. I would be happy to supply copies of any of the above certifications if desired. Please contact me to discuss a plan for your child.
