We’re excited to share more in-depth news coverage over how Lexercise’s Structured Literacy (aka Orton-Gillingham) teletherapy is a turnkey solution for struggling readers and writers.
Even with over 60 million people in the US suffering from dyslexia, the learning disability still poses a serious challenge for schools and parents to address. Many families are confused about where to find adequate help for dyslexia testing and/or treatment. The idea of using online services may seem a bit foreign, as it is definitely an emerging technology, so we are thrilled to give you this up-close view of what Lexercise’s teletherapy model actually looks like.
We cheer on Decoding Dyslexia and the International Dyslexia Association who work to educate, raise awareness and advocate for those struggling with dyslexia and are fighting to change how literacy challenges are addressed at school. As we all work together to raise awareness, we hope this news coverage caught the eyes of some parents, educators and/or medical professionals to help them understand that there are resources that can help (no matter where they live).
If you are concerned your child is dyslexic, take the free dyslexia test now.
Since 2003, Tori has been a committed special educator, working as an elementary special education teacher. Her drive to improve outcomes for her students with dyslexia led her to the Neuhaus Education Center, where she was trained in Orton-Gillingham the summer after her first year of teaching. "I was so frustrated as a first year teacher, not knowing how to meet my students' needs. I spent the entire summer learning about dyslexia and was thrilled by my students' progress the next year!" Since then, she has used the method in English and Spanish with students in three states. In 2009, Tori completed her M.Ed. in Special Education at the Peabody College of Vanderbilt University, where she focused on educational strategies for students with learning disabilities. Tori joined the Lexercise team full-time in early 2014 after seeing students online for over a year. When she is not working, Tori loves to read, cook, garden, and spend as much time outdoors as possible.
