Hello! My name is Nancy.
As a teacher learning about evidence-based literacy practices and the Science of Reading is the most powerful skill set I have developed. Empowering learners to read and write not only creates life-long learning skills, it reduces the impact of poverty, adverse childhood experiences, trauma, and mental illness.
Like most educators, the knowledge and skills necessary to teach and assess skilled reading and writing were not included in my teacher preparation. Two of my children are dyslexic and struggled learning to read. Like many teachers and parents - I kept searching for solutions.
The pursuit paid dividends for my children and for others. Strategies that are necessary for dyslexic learners benefit and accelerate learning for all learners. Now, I apply what I have learned to empower others to improve their literacy skills.
You can improve your reading, spelling, and writing at any age! I would love to help you :)

ETSL Training For K-12 Remediation Educators - Evidence-Based Literacy Instruction (EBLI)
I use EBLI - Evidence-Based Literacy Instruction. I value your time and energy and EBLI is the most efficient, effective, evidence-based system of literacy instruction I have found.
Structured literacy and Orton-Gillingham were effective for my elementary aged son, but had limited success with my high school daughter.
My daughter and I attended an EBLI training. We are both severely dyslexic. I had all but given up - accepting that I was better suited for work that didn't require significant reading or writing and that my daughter would be dependent on accommodations to survive her classes and graduate high school.
In just a few days - hours really - we both experienced measurable growth in our reading accuracy, fluency, comprehension, and spelling. The improvements have not only lasted, but grown exponentially.
I currently use EBLI with my justice involved learners and tutoring clients ages 10 to 57.
The most amazing part is the transformation in engagement and CONFIDENCE - for children, adolescents, and adults.
What is EBLI?
EBLI - Evidence-Based Literacy Instruction is:
a system of consistent strategies for reading, writing, and spelling.
explicit systematic instruction
Use sounds - rather than letter names when reading and spelling
analyze patterns in the English language - rather than rules
sound out words - rather than memorize, guess, or look at pictures
Send a message or book a complementary consultation.
