Summary

I am a qualified Orton-Gillingham mutlisensory language therapist who has operated my own business serving students with language and maths difficulties for over six years. Originally, I worked for eight years as a primary and Junior High classroom teacher in Canada, then made the transition to teaching students with learning differences in Australia. Since gaining specialised training in teaching literacy to dyslexic students, I have become passionate about teaching reading, writing, and spelling to students in need of assistance, who need a different way of teaching and learning! The changes I’ve seen for students in language led me to upgrade my instructional skills in maths as well. I reflected on my own learning and realised I could have learned maths better. I simply needed to learn more actively and hands on. Now I provide thorough, active, hands-on instruction in maths for students who learn differently. It has been a privilege to work with the students I have taught, and see how much they’ve grown.

At Bridges we specialise in teaching literacy and numeracy to children, youth, and adults struggling with learning, such as those with dyslexia, language based learning differences, adhd, or processing differences. We aim to make a serious improvement in achievement for each learner we work with.



Our students, through explicit, multisensory, cumulative, Orton-Gillingham instruction, develop independence, accuracy, and fluency as readers, spellers, and writers.



Noticeable changes start to occur rapidly, typically within 5 hours of specialist instruction. Children begin to feel more capable as learners, and this can lower stress for everyone.



In maths, they develop clear understanding of numeracy concepts and procedures.



With Bridges, you will see reading, writing, spelling, and maths skills and knowledge develop, even when other instructional methods and programs haven't worked. We pinpoint learning gaps and tailor multisensory instruction to the individual.



We reinforce success to foster self worth and develop confidence in learning. We do this by individualising instruction, positive reinforcement, and addressing the student's specific needs.



Sessions are one hour in length, individualised, and intensive.
