Please note that although I may write about Dyslexia, Montessori Education, teaching, and parenting, I am not an expert in these fields. I am simply a mother. Through trial and error, I have settled on things that are working for my kiddos and our situation. I do hope that my work may help save others both time and money but I can not say for sure that what has worked for mine will work for yours.
Even so, I would like to mention that I do have a masters degree in Social Work. Several years ago, while my boys were in preschool, I participated in a Montessori Assistant Teacher Training program. I also participated in Linda Mood-Bell's Seeing Stars and Verbalizing/Visualizing Programs. In addition, I am familiar with Linda Mood-Bell's Lips program. In terms of specific learning around Dyslexia, I participated in Susan Barton's six day training program and have studied a fair amount of Orton-Gillingham's work around dyslexia. Finally, I was also lucky enough to participate in a parenting program called Redirecting Children's Behavior.
