Testimonials

"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." 
--Lorrie Dykstra, Richfield Springs Central School, 3rd Grade
 
 
"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!"  --Marie McCrea, Schenevus Central School, Special Educator
 
 
"The multisensory math presentation by Marilyn Zecher, and brought to SUNY Oneonta by Kimberly More of the Leatherstocking Dyslexia Center, LLC, was very informative.  The content can be applied directly to the classroom, general education and special education, and outside the classroom.  It also provided a very much-needed focus on dyslexia and helping all students with special needs.  I very much recommend this workshop to school districts, teachers and parents."  --Sharon Domine, Cooperstown Central School
