Helping children with dyslexia and related language-learning disorders flourish and reach their full potential!
Ellen Rigg is a speech-language pathologist who is passionate about helping students with language-based learning disabilities experience success in school and build confidence! Language and Learning disorders commonly cause children and their families anxiety and frustration. As a result, a child's confidence, academic engagement, and enjoyment of reading, writing, and learning opportunities often suffer.
The approach to assessment and intervention at Language and Literacy Specialists combines best practice guidelines, evidence-based methodologies, and personalized experience. Ellen provides comprehensive diagnostic assessments of language and learning disorders (including dyslexia) and communication disorders. At Language and Literacy Specialists, treatment is evidence-based and carefully designed to target your child's specific areas of need while building upon their strengths and learning style.
"Dyslexia is a different brain organization that needs different teaching methods. It is never the fault of the child, but rather the responsibility of us who teach to find methods that work for that child."
-MARYANNE WOLF, Director, Center for Reading and Language Research, Tufts University
