Students with Dyslexia?
Help them read and write!
The Leatherstocking Dyslexia Center, LLC is a new organization aimed at providing learning opportunities and doing all that we can to make reading and writing an attainable goal for dyslexic children and adults of all ages.
A certified program which can be brought to your school personnel at a very reasonable rate, we are an educational center in collaboration with SUNY Oneonta. Our goal is to help children with specific reading difficulties learn to read through one-on–one tutoring. We also offer training for Certification in an Orton-Gillingham based Program of Education in Therapy for Dyslexia. Since the need for both is greater than our Center can meet in our facility, we are hoping to help more educators and children by offering this training in the schools.
Thinking outside the box (also thinking out of the box or thinking beyond the box) is a metaphor that means to think differently, unconventionally, or from a new perspective. This phrase often refers to novel or creative thinking. The term is thought to derive from management consultants in the 1970s and 1980s challenging their clients to solve the "nine dots" puzzle, whose solution requires some lateral thinking.
The catchphrase, or cliché, has become widely used in business environments, especially by management consultants and executive coaches, and has been referenced in a number of advertising slogans. To think outside the box is to look further and to try not thinking of the obvious things, but to try thinking of the things beyond them. Are you thinking outside the box?

I came to learn strategies to help my students with learning differences and have learned strategies to help all my students. First providing concrete examples, then moving to the abstract.
After being an educator for over 20 years, it was very astounding to learn some of the multisensory strategies with the reasoning behind the math concepts. I wish I had learned this in my undergraduate and graduate programs!
