I am a certified Dyslexia Consultant and Teacher.

I can conduct a consultation with the parents, which includes collecting all report cards and all testing results that have been done with the student along with a parent interview. After I have reviewed each of these pieces of information, the parent(s) and I will meet in person to decide the next step.

Or I can conduct the consultation and a screening, which includes all of the above along with a 2-3 hour screening session with the student. After reviewing the paperwork, parent interview and screening results, a 12+/- page report will be written and a final parent meeting will take place. The parents will then need to decide if I will move forward in tutoring the student using a specific dyslexia reading and spelling program.

    “We feel so lucky to have found Rise Above Tutoring.  Our son, a fifth grader at the time, was struggling with school, especially with reading, writing and spelling. We brought him to Rise Above for testing and help.  After working with Lisa, we found out he has dyslexia. We signed him up for tutoring right away and what a difference it has made!   Not only in his school abilities, but in his self esteem and day to day life. He is a different kid!  He is learning to read, write and spell with accuracy and confidence.  Working with Lisa and Rise Above has changed his life and ours. We are so grateful. Thank you Lisa!!” ~ Kristin and Jeff
