Support for Students with Mild to Moderate Learning Differences
Advocacy for Services for Mild/ Moderate Learning Disabilities
As parents of two grown children who have dyslexia, we know there is a need for support for students and parents in New Orleans. Even as educators, we often felt overwhelmed seeing our own two children struggle. It was difficult to know whom to turn to for help, and at times it was emotionally and financially trying. With the right professionals, we learned to advocate for our children to get them the support, understanding and the accommodations they deserved. Without the right guidance, students with learning differences can be left with low self-esteem and inadequate preparation for years to come.
With Kate's experience in early childhood and Educational Therapy and Todd's experience with middle school and high school students, young adults will be welcomed into a learning center where as a team, we both will offer support to students needing reading, spelling, writing, and organizational interventions. We use a variety of methods and strategies specifically tailored to each student, and by partnering with parents and teachers, we provide measurable academic success which leads to gains in students' self-confidence and pride. We have offered private tutoring at our Uptown office as well as on school campus' and students' homes. Since March, we offer our services on Zoom. Together, we provide practical, effective education support drawn from years of experience. Whether your child is in the first grade or the twelfth grade, we can assist in helping him or her meet success and build self-advocacy skills to live happier lives.
In the spring of 2020, we decided to expand our private practice. We have hired an associate and have begun consulting families interested in sending their children to New England prep schools. Having met in boarding school, we credit our interest in education to the experiences we had. We also sent both of our children to boarding schools in New York and Connecticut. We were looking for a learning enviornment and community that both challenged their strengths and supported their weaknesses. Although sending our children away during their high school years has its sacrifices, the outcome has been transformational. With having contacts at many schools, we guide families through their search and the admissions process.
