HOW I TEACH

PARENTS

Children with dyslexia benefit from a team approach. Parent conferences are available and encouraged. I will work with you, as well as the teacher and the school, to support your child in any way possible. I am also available to attend your child's school conferences.  If you have insurance that pays for all or a portion of my services, I will be happy to complete any insurance forms without charge. 

I will perform benchmark testing regularly to show growth and check on your child's progress.
