Ages 4 - middle school
Orton Gillingham trained
experience working with students on the Autism Spectrum
Hi, I’m Courtney!
For the past six years, I have worked in a behavior program with students from Kindergarten to 12th grade. Here I help students one-on-one supporting them with acquiring academic, social, emotional and behavioral skills. Here we combine individualized instruction with a multimodal approach and high-interest materials to maximize learning.
Students that attend this program have diagnoses of ADHD, ODD, ASD, etc.
My experience working with these students has shown me that I needed to learn a way to systematically teach my students to read.
This led to getting trained in Orton Gillingham's approach to reading. This program helps students with phonological awareness and gives students a structured way to learn to read that is effective and follows the Science of Reading.
I love to help teach math (it was always my favorite subject in school ) and I will soon be taking the Orton Gillingham Math program.
I love being at the beach on my off time and spending time with family.
