Winemiller & Associates, Inc.

Sue Winemiller, Licensed Dyslexia Therapist

Sue Winemiller helps struggling students develop fundamental academic skills with approaches that build confidence, minimize frustration, and help develop an understanding of the learning process.  She provides:

Dyslexia Remediation for Grades 1 - 4.  The Alphabet Phonics and Take Flight curricula are used to address the five components of effective reading instruction identified by the National Reading Panel's research:  phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and reading comprehension.

Study Skills Training for Grades 5 - 12.  Students often need help with the mechanics of doing their schoolwork.  Unlike traditional study skills courses, Sue prefers to integrate study skills instruction into the student's current assignments.  This enables practical application; the work gets done and long-lasting skills are taught at the same time.

 Areas of instruction are based on the student's needs and class requirements, and can include:

 

  • Organizing and prioritizing assignments
  • Using the resources that the school provides
  • Reading textbooks and materials for comprehension
  • Taking notes from textbooks and in class
  • Writing essays, journal entries, and reports
  • Developing strategies for remembering information
  • Preparing for subject-matter tests
  • Self-monitoring progress

 Sue is currently accepting new students at all grade levels.
