  • What is your training?
    I have a masters degree in Speech/Language Pathology and have specialized in dyslexia assessment and intervention for 18 years. Prior to branching off into dyslexia, I worked for 25 years in a public school. I began testing children for dyslexia with the Alabama Scottish Foundation Learning Centers under the mentorship of Dr. Denise Gibbs. I have also received training in specific dyslexia intervention programs such as Language! Wilson Language, Project Read, Handwriting Without Tears and Spire. I completed over 120 hours of post-graduate training in the Orton-Gillingham method.
  • What licenses/certificates do you hold?
    I am nationally board-certified in Speech/Language Pathology and earned my Certificate of Clinical Competence in 1981. I also am licensed through the Alabama Board of Examiners in Speech/Language Pathology to practice privately in the state of Alabama.
  • How long have you been evaluating children?
    I have evaluated children for over 42 years.
  • What are some of the tests you use?
    I have a battery of standardized and non-standardized tests such as the Comprehensive Test of Phonological Processing, Test of Word Reading Efficiency, Gray Oral Reading Test, Test of Written Spelling, Oral and Written Language Scales.
  • Will you be able to refer us to a dyslexia or educational therapist?
    Yes, I have a list of area tutors qualified to help your child.
  • Will you meet with us and provide a written report after the testing?
    Yes, we will review the test results on the day of the testing and I will provide a comprehensive written report within a week.
  • If my child is diagnosed with dyslexia, what is the next step?
    The next logical step is to develop an intervention plan through the school and/or privately with an Orton-Gillingham trained tutor. This plan will include intervention goal and classroom accommodations.
