Summary of relevant research and practical classroom applications:
Stacey Rayment B. Ed, M.Ed Specializing in literacy for students of all ages. Stacey practices and studies Educational Therapy techniques. She has been teaching since 1986, working with students ranging from adults to preschoolers. Embracing her own dyslexia/ADHD and parenting 3 children with similar learning profiles, she passionately advocates and models evidence-based teaching to ensure success for all of her students. Currently working 1:1 for early identification, intervention, and skill development with students ranging from those at risk to gifted.
Carol Lenfesty B. Ed. has 20 years classroom teaching experience, specializing in multi-grade ESL and mathematics. She has recently modified her career path to pursue interests in educational therapy, sound and syllable progressions in reading, and intervention for those who may have vulnerable areas in their pre-reading development. She currently works with several students in private educational consulting work. Re-wiring and strengthening areas of weakness in the brain that may get in the way of real learning and understanding is essential to develop life-long independent learners. Once students know HOW to learn, they will become successful.
