What makes your approach different?
Experience + Training
We specialize on only referring to individuals with a reading specialist degree or an extensive number of years as an experienced reading teacher. We will not connect you with an individual that is not trained in the specialized area of literacy. Most of our specialists are trained in various intervention approaches including Reading Recovery, which is a specialized, research based intervention that supports the lowest achieving first graders experience success with reading and writing. We also utilize Orton Gillingham, a multi sensory approach, designed for children and adults with learning differences, particularly dyslexia.
What if my child has not been diagnosed by the school?
We're here to help!
Oftentimes, the referral process in schools can be lengthy and daunting. Your child can wait a year or longer before being referred to have extra support. We're here to put your worries at ease. We offer informal reading assessments and will explain the results to you. We will then use them to guide our instruction in order to meet your child where he is.
Does my child really need extra help?
We could all use extra one-one attention!
Whether or not your child has been identified by his teacher in terms of struggling with reading or writing, one-one attention by a specialist is valuable at any age. We can meet your child where he is and work with him to support the areas (such as early reading skills, fluency, comprehension, and writing skills) he needs.
What are the fees involved?
We offer targeted intervention services
Our services are different than tutoring services. We provide assessments that will target exactly where remediation needs to begin. We also utilize specialized interventions, including the Orton Gillingham approach, to plan lessons specifically for your child. Hourly fees are comparable to other professional services, such as speech therapy or counseling. Session prices range from $90-$130 depending on length.
What if I do not live near your office?
We offer virtual sessions
We offer online (virtual), interactive sessions if you do not live in the Alpharetta area. It is quite simple and the only items you need are a laptop, headphones, and internet connection! Our families love this option for vacations, busy school schedules, or even when a child stays home sick from school. Contact us for more details regarding virtual sessions.
