About Dixie

I am passionate about helping children with dyslexia. Contrary to what others may say children with dyslexia can learn to be successful readers and spellers.
I am certified in a proven method for teaching dyslexic children the skills they need to become successful readers and spellers. I also have experience working with ADD/ADHD children.

I am certified in the Barton Reading and Spelling system, an Orton-Gillihan derived system, and have had great success tutoring children with it.
The tutoring process is a 10 level series, and requires consistent work and tutoring to close the reading gap and build the skills necessary to be a successful reader and speller.
Children being tutored will require a minimum of two hours a week for the tutoring system to be successful.

I continue to further my knowledge about Dyslexia every chance I get, by attending workshops and conference relating to dyslexia and other reading disorders. I have also attended workshops on Special Education Law. I am not only equipped to tutor your child to improve their reading and spelling, but also to help you and your child understand what Dyslexia is (and is not). I can help to develop a plan for accommodations to be used at home and in school. I not only will help your child learn reading and spelling but help to identify the areas they have strengths in as well, as it is important to give a struggling child confidence by not just focusing on areas they struggle with.

As the mother of a Dyslexic child, I have the unique perspective of not just a professional tutor, but as parent too. I know Dyslexic children are bright, creative, and talented people who just need extra help to reach their potential. Let me help your child unlock their potential,by helping them learn to be a successful reader.
