“Our daughter was diagnosed with dyslexia at the end of the second/beginning of the third grade, and by then had low self esteem and difficulty reading in all subject matters and keeping up with her peers. We were referred to Fiona and at first the idea of going three times a week seemed daunting and a hard sell to an already self-conscious student. However Fiona, through games and other techniques to teach decoding, managed to not only gain Maya’s trust but also develop a friendship. Maya attended sessions with Fiona for two and a half years, until she unfortunately departed for the West Coast and we could not recommend Fiona's services more highly, it gave our daughter the step up she needed. She is now a confident young girl in middle school with semesters of straight A’s and has become an avid reader. We could not be more appreciative of Fiona’s time and dedication.”
“Fiona James is hands down the best reading specialist on the planet. She is a master at connecting with students, at finding their area of weakness, at building upon their strengths, at giving them the confidence they need to work through academic and reading challenges, and at providing them with rich, in depth phonics, sight words, and reading instruction to even the most challenging students. Look no further, Fiona is the best."
"Fiona worked with our daughter after she was diagnosed with dyslexia in 2nd grade. Ava had lost a lot of confidence with her learning in the school environment and Fiona made Ava feel comfortable and made it fun for her. As Ava's skills grew we could see her confidence begin to grow again in the classroom. Hands down Fiona was one of the best Academic Therapists that we have worked with. "
“Fiona received rigorous training to become an ALT (Academic Language Therapist) She is able to work with... a range of students from those severely impacted to those more mildly impacted by their dyslexia.”
