Syllabee Literacy: Yes, Parents Can! @ Portland
Jun 3 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Learn about Syllabee Literacy’s Parent Training Program, an innovative parent mentoring program designed to be affordable and effective for families with dyslexia seeking to help themselves. Syllabee equips parents to tutor, encourage, and advocate for children with dyslexia or trouble reading. Syllabee’s proprietary eight-week program includes customized lesson plans with word lists tailored for each child’s specific needs.  Katie will share triumphs, challenges, and easy-to-apply takeaways from her program, which equips parents not only with technical know-how but also with social-emotional insights that minimize the tears and frustration of learning together.

Katie Husmann Stevenson first started tutoring children with dyslexia in 2010 and was amazed by the transformations learners can achieve with the right attention, but frustrated by the many obstacles that parents face as they seek remediation for their children. She has privately tutored over a hundred children with language processing or executive functioning difficulties. She received training in all of Lindamood-Bell’s programs (Seeing Stars, Visualizing and Verbalizing, Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing, On Cloud 9, and Talkies). She is also a curriculum design consultant for the Center for Advanced Study of Teaching and Learning (CASTL) at the University of Virginia.
