Hi, my name is Claudia. I've been educating children with special needs for 10+ years as a teacher assistant for preschoolers, a volunteer for elementary aged students and then as an English High School teacher. I have educated children with various disabilities and concerns, including but not limited to ADD/ADHD, autism, developmentally disabled, physically disabled, down syndrome and learning disabled as well as those within the general education population.

My goal is to find a passion for reading and compensations for roadblocks for my students. Through writing, they can find their voice and become clear in their opinions and insights.

The first lesson will be assessing:
* reading/writing level
* goals
* strengths
* roadblocks
* student interests

We will also be working on access to books, with the goal of getting a library card, which I will help with step by step for your particular library. After the first lesson, students will have a clear picture of state standards and studying skills they will need to succeed and enjoy reading.

I had volunteered as a teacher aide for elementary students with various disabilities for 6 years. I then was a paid preschool teacher aide for 2 summers, working with learning disabled, down syndrome and children with autism.
