Workshops & Consultations for Parents
A consultation consists of meeting with parents who are interested in better understanding their child’s literacy needs. Consultations are both for parents who want to engage an eager reader and for those who need to pinpoint a child’s academic challenges.
During in person consultation, I will meet with you and your child to provide an interview and informal reading assessment. The consultation will last about an hour to an hour and a half. This service includes a follow-up conversation and specific recommendations on how to best meet the child’s needs.
During econsults I will answer specific questions and provide general recommendations for your child. I will also provide referrals to specialists and resources. These sessions are between 30-45 minutes and aimed to help you create a roadmap for your child.
