Special Needs

ADHD,

ADHD

Many of my dyslexic students also suffer from ADHD. These students with ADHD learn best with carefully structured lessons.I would also explain to the student what I want them to learn in the current lesson. Next I'd mention to the student how he or she should behave during the lesson. Introducing Lessons Provide an advance organizer. I also use templates to help organize the student. Prepare student for the lesson by summarizing the order of activities planned. I'd also remind the student for example, that a review of the previous lesson will be followed by new information.
Dyslexia,

Dyslexia

I have been successfully teaching dyslexia and ADHD students for over five years using the Barton Method. The The Barton Reading & Spelling System is an Orton-Gillingham influenced approach to reading and spelling. All the latest scientific, independent, replicated reading research supports the Orton-Gillingham sequence and methodology as “best practices” when teaching reading to students with dyslexia. I am creative in my teaching approach as well as positive and encouraging. My students excel with my cutting edge instructional techniques.
