     My enthusiasm for reading began years ago as I helped my own children celebrate triumphs and navigate stumbling blocks in their reading scholarship.  With a desire to learn more about the science of reading, I earned my teaching degree in Elementary Education from Indiana University. In addition, I went on to specialized training in Literacy Instruction development at Indiana University and reading/language training in the Lindamood-Bell learning processing method---for authentic reading development.

     My work adheres to “scientific validated evidence-based reading assessments and intervention” that “pinpoints” skill strengths and needs.  The on-going cycle of assessment and explicit instruction measures and targets the skill areas of. . . . . . . . . . . .
