About Althea

As an experienced Speech/Language Pathologist and Reading Tutor, I have worked with individuals from birth thru senior citizens. The majority of my experience has been with students from grades K.12, however, I have recently been working in the area of Early Intervention with babies from birth to three years old who experience communication and/or language deficits. I have worked with individuals with disabilities in a variety of settings including home environments, daycare centers, public and private schools and treatment facilities.

I am a former daycare/center owner/director and Early Steps Service Provider. I possess a genuine desire to nurture and help children achieve their developmental potential and I look forward to the opportunity to service you through the WyzAnt Tutoring Program.

I have been a certified teacher and a licensed Speech/Language Pathologist, working with children with speech and language deficits for over thirty years. I specialize in phonics and articulation disorders, word recognition and language disorders.

In addition to the aforementioned specializations, during my tenure as a Speech Pathologist I have also worked with children with Autism and Asperger's Syndrome, in both the public school setting and with a private agency for over 12 years. I also keep abreast of current information on this subject, by attending continuing education classes pertaining, to not only Autism but other relevant areas, as well.
