Orton-Gillingham is a multi-sensory and explicit instructional approach to teach students having difficulties with reading (decoding), spelling and writing associated with dyslexia

In my experience, once roadblocks are identified that have been creating challenges for years, easy wins start to build confidence and a brand new path!

Children are faced with educational demands they are not developmentally ready for resulting in a downward spiral of frustration & self doubt in learning & social experiences...just to name a few. 

These students need to work step by step to gain quick wins from the start at their own pace to build confidence. 

My passion is helping all students find their path including:

Struggling Reader • Special Needs • Master Procrastinator •  Dyslexic  

Slow Processor • Easily Overloaded • Learning Challenges • Unorganized  Unmotivated •  ADD/ADHD

I truly believe that what we see depends mainly on what we look for.  If we search for labels to fit children or focus on the reasons why they fail, we will discover the deficiencies. Constant negative focus creates a situation in which the child questions his/her own worth, and their confidence is diminished decreasing motivation and mental effort applied toward tasks. This is an approach that simply does not work. Solutions don’t come from asking “what is wrong with my child,” rather we need to explore answers to the question: “how can I create an environment in which my child can succeed.”    read more >


Dr. Julie creates programs that work – for organizations and, most importantly, for the children they serve.
