Student Learning Issues

Many THEO students have learning differences on a wide variety of levels.  The good and bad news is that the world is awash in sources of help for your family if one of your children is in need of learning help.

The first line of defense  if your student has learning differences and you need counseling in that area,  is Lisa Wright at the Wright Approach, PLLC.  She offers dyslexia therapy and ADHD life coaching.  Reach Lisa at thewrightapproach@gmail.com or 214-448-5472.  Lisa’s web site is www.thewrightapproach.org

 

THEO also recommends two different diagnosticians:

1) Priscilla DeLatte who is a retired educational diagnostician.  Priscilla is available to talk via telephone or email to schedule a time for testing.  Her testing is thorough, accepted by colleges and public schools and reasonably priced.  Priscilla is a sweet Christian who loves helping families unravel the mystery of their children.  Contact Priscilla at pdelatte@tx.rr.com.

2) Sandi Frost, M.Ed. who is with Grace Evaluation.  You can reach her at sandi@graceevaluation.com or her direct line is 972-646-2733

The beauty of Lisa Wright, Priscilla DeLatte and Sandi Frost is that they do not sell services to correct the problem.  They can help you identify the problem without any financial skin in the game which would motivate them to “find additional problems” which could lead to more money.

THEO parent and teacher, Vicki Musall, is also an excellent resource if you have a child with learning differences but her specialization is helping students and parents navigate when the student has tendencies of autism or Asperger Syndrome.  You can reach Vicki Musall at vicki.musall@mac.com and her fee is $50/hour with a one hour minimum.  You can read more about Vicki’s background at our THEO teacher page.  Vicki does not consult on a regular basis but she can direct you to leads from her vast knowledge of resources in the area.

However sometimes we all need help beyond diagnosis.

THEO has developed a strong relationship with Acorn to Oak, Dr. Terrie Naramore.  Her web site is http://acorntooak.com/

Finally, we recommend you work with Dr. Patricia Scott, retired home school parent and Psychiatrist.  You can reach Dr. Scott at patscottmdpa@gmail.com
