After graduation, and moving to Austin, Texas, she received her (CALP) Certified Academic Language Practitioner's license and her dyslexia certification through the Scottish Rite Dyslexia Center of Austin. She then passed the Alliance National Exam, which promotes quality standards in the remediation of written and language skills, and is accredited by the International Multisensory Structure Language Education Council (IMSLEC).

She has worked for Round Rock as a dyslexia evaluator and dyslexia specialist for the past twenty-one years. She retired from Round Rock in June 2017 but continues her passion of evaluating for dyslexia and tutoring dyslexic children.

 

Allizon and Penny have received extensive training through Region XIII, Neuhaus, Scottish Rite, Rawson Saunders, WILSON and Really Great Reading, just to name a few, to remediate the difficulties faced by dyslexic students.

 

The main component of an Orton-Gillingham dyslexia program is decoding (the sounding out of new words) which is presented in a multi-sensory fashion. Decoding will be the main focus for many of our students coupled with phonological awareness activities and a reading fluency component.

 

Our instructors offer your child a blended approach to improve their handwriting, phonemic awareness, sight words, reading fluency, decoding, encoding (spelling), vocabulary, morphology (study of Greek and Latin words), comprehension, phonics and written expression skills.

 

In addition, we offer several sessions for the parents to learn about dyslexia if requested. Please refer to the

SERVICES & SCHEDULE tab on our website to specifics about the sessions we offer.
