My name is Mary Elizabeth and I am a reading specialist with over ten years of experience working with children with language based learning disabilities. I specialize in working with children and their families to develop language and literacy skills so that children can become successful readers and writers. I believe early literacy development is critical to later success and my goal is to provide language and literacy activities and information to parents to help literacy skills develop at home. I have my masters in language and literacy from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and my doctorate in educational leadership. I have training in Wilson Reading, Columbia Teacher's College Reading and Writing Project, and the Haskins Literacy Initiative at Haskins Laboratories at Yale. I look forward to sharing literacy activities and research with your family.
