Praise for Dr. Ann Helmus from a Former Client's Mom Who Was Moved to Become a Certified Orton-Gillingham Practitioner

From NESCA

July 31, 2015

The other day, in the form of a request to connect on LinkedIn, we received the following note about NESCA Director Dr. Ann Helmus from Bonnie Magoon Haley, the mother of a former client. We reprint here with her permission:

"Ann saved my son back in 2000, when he was entering 5th grade and still reading on a 1st-grade level. She was our 3rd neuro (psychologist), and finally someone told us it was dyslexia and to get OG (Orton-Gillingham, an effective, multi-sensory approach to the teaching of reading) for him. That's why I am a certified OG practitioner today. He graduated from Emerson College in 2014 and is now a Disney Imagineer! Thank you."

We're very grateful to Bonnie for having taken the time to write with such an inspirational reminder of the real-world impact our clinicians' work at NESCA can have.

Dyslexia's Creative Process
She has just launched her own 501(c)(3) charitable organization, the National Society of Creative Dyslexics, Inc., along with an Orton-Gillingham group practice, at 125 Main Street in Andover, MA. The Society's website includes lots of information likely to be of value to families affected by dyslexia. Pay it a visit!
