The Full Story



Let me introduce myself and share my background.  My journey has many dimensions.  I am an individual with a diagnosed learning disability.   I am the mother of three, now adult, children who have diagnosed learning disabilities.  I am, as a Fellow of the Academy of Orton-Gillingham, an expert in the instruction of phonics and ran a tutoring center for 7 years.  I am a licensed School Psychologist in the State of Indiana and have worked for ten years in that capacity in schools.  I have a PhD in School Psychology and am a member of the American Psychological Association.  I am the inventor of Sounds First Reading System and have worked developing that tool over the past 10 years.

Teacher and Student


We want to expand the amount of people who can teach reading.
