On the Go with Literacy Specialist, Carol Boles

Welcome to day five of Carol Boles’ 6-day NWFCC March Specialist Showcase tour. Carol, can you share with us what you’ll be doing in the near future for your career?

This summer I will be teaching Reading Specialists and Special Education teachers how to use the Orton-Gillingham, multi-sensory method of teaching phonics to dyslexic learners—with Janet Petersen, Adjunct Professor with Baker University, Overland Park, Kansas.

Course time, place and cost will be posted later on my website, Carol Fraser Boles: Literacy Tips and Resources for Educators and Parents.

Services I provide are:
• Formal and informal reading assessments on reading and learning for parents and teachers,
• Private tutoring and differentiated instruction in reading and learning disabilities to children and adults,
• Individual consultations with parents on how they can help their children learn and read,
• Consultations with classroom teachers about effective reading strategies and teaching strategies they can implement in their classrooms.

Thanks, Carol, for stopping on by, and best wishes with your tour!

Follow Day 6 of Carol Boles’ tour tomorrow at the site, Writing and Other Ways into the Heart of the Matter…for Kids.

  1. For my children, they read more when I give them compliments on their reading and enthusiastic when they sound out new big words or even complete a page. Its our most effective reading strategy – to be joyful.
