MA, MSW

I believe that every student can grow his or her confidence and develop a love of stories when provided with explicit, systematic, and fun instruction. 

I provide reading remediation services, assessments, and parent workshops to meet the needs of children and help create family bonds and less struggle while learning to read.

I understand that when a child struggles with learning, it can affect the entire family and have a dramatic impact on a parent. I’m here to show you that creating a new normal and working with your child’s strengths will allow your child to continue progressing and growing confidence as a learner.  

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 assessed students in grades K - 12 to provide a semester-long intervention and study examining each student's needs, progress and further 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.  

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.

When I'm not working, I love spending time with my friends and family and exploring with my two girls! In my spare time, I listen to as many books and magazines as I can cram into my rare downtime.
