“My personal experience raising a dyslexic child led me to study the reading process and ultimately, to create the Lil' Reading Scientists Literacy Solutions TM curriculum - a program that successfully teaches young children the requisite and foundational skills that underlie decoding, encoding, writing, handwriting, reading comprehension, and fluency. I believe that no child should have to suffer because they have fallen through the cracks in the educational system”.
“Rather than waiting for a child to fail in the reading process, I believe in early literacy intervention and preventive teaching for all children. Lil’ Reading Scientists TM™ Curriculum builds strong literacy skills for children from all backgrounds, educational experiences, and socio-economic levels. We have taught thousands of children how to read with the Lil’ Reading Scientists curriculum™, and we have helped thousands of children to become stronger readers. It has been the most rewarding experience of my life!”
