Hello world! My name is ReGina. I’m really excited about sharing with you all that I have learned about dyslexia, but before I do, I thought I’d tell you a little bit about me.☺️
I have gained a variety of educational experiences such as teaching grades K , 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 6th grade social studies. I have presented for the MS Reading Association, AmeriCorp, Biloxi School District, and Hattiesburg School District. I have also written for the Mississippi Reading Association Journal and Read Write Think.
I currently hold a Bachelors of Science Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Southern Mississippi, a Masters of Literacy Degree from the University of Southern Mississippi and I am a Dyslexia Therapy Intern with William Carey University. I am expected to graduate February of 2017 with a masters in dyslexia therapy. I will be sitting for the California Auditory Language Specialist (CALT) exam next summer.
I began my search for answers over 15 years ago when my first born was diagnosed with dyslexia. My third child is also dyslexic.
I now homeschool my third grader. I am also the Executive Director of The Mississippi Gulf Coast Center for Dyslexia and a dyslexia therapist. I provide dyslexia therapy to not only my daughter, but to several other students who are homeschooled, as well as students from the public sector.
The purpose of this blog is to not only share my experiences as a therapist, but also as a parent of dyslexic children.
It is my wish that you are able to discover something about yourself, understand dyslexic children a bit better, and what it’s like to not only witness, but interact daily with children of dyslexia.
