Leighanne Scheuermann


I received a master’s degree in reading from Teachers College Columbia University and a master’s in social work from the University of Pennsylvania. I completed my supervised practicum work, a two-year program, at The Dean Hope Center for Educational and Psychological Services at Teachers College Columbia University. Here I collaborated with psychology students to assess students in grades K - 12, provide a semester-long study and report examining the student's needs, progress and recommendations. 

Following my work at The Dean Hope Center, I was a reading specialist at a charter school in the Bronx where I provided reading remediation for students in grades K - 6. I then spent three years as the Reading and Learning Specialist for Marymount School of New York, where I worked with teachers, parents, and students in grades PreK - 4. I later spent some time as a school administrator for a school serving students with learning differences before starting my private practice.

My experience and education have provided me the opportunity to work with students with a wide range of diagnoses and in collaboration with a strong network of schools, administrators, psychologists, therapists, and physicians. I have extensive work examining, analyzing and helping parents understand the results of academic testing such as the Gates MacGinitie, the CTOPP, the Nelson-Denny, and the Woodcock-Johnson and the CTP.  

I provide reading remediation services, informal assessments, and parent workshops.  I truly believe that every student can grow his or her confidence and develop a love of stories when provided with explicit, fun instruction and the correct materials and environment. 

While my name has a million letters in it, it has only four syllables. Scheuermann rhymes with Herman and can be spelled to the tune of the Mickey Mouse Club song. I would love to meet you and help you and your family. Please contact me to set up a free phone consultation.
