I have taught students with ADD/ADHD for fifteen years in an elementary school setting. I have written individualized education programs that were suited to meet their needs in a structured and positive learning setting.

Aspergers

I have taught elementary students with Aspergers in resource room and special class settings. As indicated in the students' Individual Education Programs, (IEPs), students were given specialized instruction in academic areas, self-organizational skills and study skills.

Dyslexia

During team meetings, I consulted on a regular basis with other teachers and education professionals in order to create appropriate classroom modifications to ensure academic success for the students.

I have 15 years of teaching experience working in elementary schools as a special education/consultant teacher. I have a Master's degree in Education, with a specialization in Special Education.

Phonics

I have a Certification in Elementary Education. I wrote Individual Education Programs for reading skills. I implemented phonics instruction by utilizing a variety of hands on Montessori and Orton Gillingham techniques.

Organizational skills are best taught by utilizing a Rubrics method for students to self-monitor their daily progress in long and short term objectives.
