Special Needs Tutoring by Patty Harvey - Is your
bright child a year or more behind in reading? Don't wait to get help. A former
homeschooling parent, I have more than 10 years' experience using the Orton-Gillingham
approach to help children and teens with learning differences. Instruction
integrates auditory/visual/kinesthetic-motor pathways to the brain in order to
build a new, lasting foundation for reading/spelling/writing. This approach is
structured, systematic, multi-sensory, phonics-based, and highly effective with
dyslexia. And most importantly, your child will gain skills and confidence for
academic success in a safe, positive environment. Free consultations; reasonable
rates. Located in Norman, I am available for co-op small group classes and
parent meetings. For a free consultation call Patti Harvey at
