My name is Limor and I'm a certified and experienced English
remediator. I specialize in the Hickey program, which is a special language
technique for teaching dyslexics, developed by Kathleen Hickey and based on the Orton Gillingham
approach. It is a highly structured, cumulative, phonic-based technique which incorporates multi sensory methods to optimize learning. It is suitable for any age range, widely used and has proven to be very successful. Your child would not only feel the improvement on the academic level but also on the personal level. As it is a known fact that low academic achievements and low self esteem go hand in hand, becoming a more fluent reader and writer and gaining more confidence will help boost your child's self esteem and make them feel they are part of the class.
I have a tremendous amount of experience in tutoring and coaching ADD/ADHD
students, and raising an ADHD child has been a challenge in itself. But it has taught me a lot about being your child's advocate, about trying to find the good in your child, about our battles in life, about raising emotionally healthy children who will eventually grow up to be happy, positive adults, about family relations and so much more. I always make sure to stay on top of my students' academic achievements, but the emotional aspect is just as important to me. As a mother, I have given the emotional support and encouragement to my ADHD son and as a tutor I have done the same with my students.
I think outside the box together with my ADD students. I empathize with my students when they fail to achieve their goals and celebrate their success with them. I believe the sky is the limit, and with the right guidance and support your child can touch the sky and that star waiting to shine, will shine.

Many times I have been asked about dyslexia by concerned parents, parents who see their child struggling at school or even as early as Pre -K, but don't know what to do or if they panic over nothing.
As a certified dyslexia tutor with a lot of experience, I can identify the warning signs right away. I would like...
Allow me to recommend this 34 minute video on ADHD. In this video Joseph Wu stands in front of an audience and talks about his ADHD, his depressions but also about what he's been doing which has brought a lot of happiness into his life.
This is a very honest, moving, funny at times, speech about a guy who has been diagnosed ADHD after he had his son diagnosed, and finally...
Children with learning disabilities are high maintenance, as any parent who has one knows.
As parents, we have to walk on a very thin line when trying to address these childrens' needs. Frustration, anger, acting out, poor performance at school, depression are only part of what they experience, and we have to show empathy, support and encourage
them, and at the same time be practical, know...
