Your struggling reader can achieve significant and permanent gains in reading and spelling! With customized, interactive live lessons disguised as games, and independent practice, The TDC Structured Literacy Action Plan empowers your child to read accurately and fluently with grade-level comprehension - and with a boost of self-confidence!
Your child is one of a kind, and their Action Plan is determined by their unique needs and personality.
I develop a plan that includes auditory/visual processing activities, animated video, online manipulatives, games, and a hands-on kit that your child uses at home for a customized learning experience focused on these core areas:
As a Certified Structured Literacy Dyslexia Specialist, I understand that struggling readers require a multi-sensory, personalized, and hands-on approach with many opportunities for practice and feedback.
I also understand that children with dyslexia may also have ADHD, and they require interactive, stimulating, and fun learning experiences.
It is my goal to build a strong foundation and help your child read at or above grade level in the shortest amount of time possible.
With independent practice 'games' 5 days of the week, your child will solidify the foundational skills they learn from our live sessions.
This daily training is monitored and adjusted based on your child's needs and performance, and the accuracy goal of each game is 90% or better.
Children love this short gamified practice and look forward to their daily practice sessions!

Dyslexia is a learning disorder that affects the ability to read, spell, write, and speak. Kids who have it are usually very bright. In fact, dyslexia is an unexpected difficulty in reading in an individual who has the intelligence to be a much better reader. While people with dyslexia are slow readers, they usually are very fast and creative thinkers with strong reasoning abilities.
Unlike speaking, children don't just "pick up" the ability to read from the environment. Those with dyslexia have trouble connecting the letters they see to the sounds those letters make.
Research shows that about 80% of children will learn to read with some form of instruction, but the remaining 20% need structured, explicit instruction on the letter-sound correlations of the language.
When children don't read well, they dread going to school every day. Frequent stomach aches, behavioral issues, and poor self-esteem are often indicators of their struggle. Early intervention can have dramatic results, and 95%-100% of children can be taught to read when given the appropriate tools.
With engaging, multisensory, structured language therapy, struggling readers learn not only how to read, spell, and write effectively, but their confidence levels soar as well!
A professional evaluation by a licensed Psychologist is the best way to determine the cause of your child's reading struggle. Without testing from a licensed psychologist, schools may not provide your child with special help.
If this is all new to you and you'd like to see if you are on the right track with your concerns, there is a quick screening that you can have your child do today and you will receive a complimentary full report.
