Approximately 32 million adults in the United States can’t read. How can we help?

Lavinia Mancuso, native New Yorker, teacher, principal, and currently Executive Director of Everyone Reading joins us to discuss her favorite topic- literacy! She explains why students are still illiterate in the US, and how we can solve this problem. Here are some of her tips: Parents and teachers must teach the five pillars of literacy and tackle all four modalities: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. When it comes to teaching decoding and spelling, keep it simple! Say the sound and write it. Practice and repetition are the key ingredients for success. Train students to use their inner ears and eyes to monitor themselves when they read. Come learn more about how to effectively teach literacy! Lavinia also recommends the Reading League to keep updated with the science of reading.

What You Need to Know About Students’ Rights of Children with Learning Disabilities

In many instances, learning disabilities are invisible. What many consider as typical behaviors, such as acting out or lack of focus, could turn out to be warning signs of underlying learning or attention difficulties. We have seen parents get caught off-guard when their child is diagnosed with a learning disability, and the process of seeking assistance from schools also adds another layer to these challenges. In this episode, special education advocate and consultant Miriam Nunberg, Esq., talks to us about students’ rights and getting proper education for children with learning disabilities. Know more about these laws created to ensure equitable learning and what accommodations you can avail for your child. Miriam recently was on the “Nice White Parents” NY Times podcast.

BIO

I've worked with children of all ages with and without disabilities for over 18 years as a day camp and sleep away camp counselor, respite care worker, tutor, volunteer, and the last 10 years professionally, in NYC, as a speech language therapist.

1997-2003: MADISON, WISCONSIN: LA TERRE DES VACHES ET DU FROMAGE

Madison est en fait une ville libérale étonnamment progressiste et un épicentre pour la recherche universitaire. En deuxième année, une classe intéressante intitulée Introduction aux troubles de la communication a piqué ma curiosité. Ne sachant rien de l'orthophonie, je me suis inscrit et suis devenu instantanément accro. Dr. Julia Evans, qui a enseigné le cours, est devenue mon mentor pour les quatre prochaines années, et elle m'a présenté au Dr Seth Pollak, avec qui j'ai travaillé pendant trois ans. Avant que vous puissiez dire abracadabra, j'étais à l’université de l’université du Wisconsin-Madison, l’une des meilleures programmes dans le pays pour l'orthophonie. Là-bas, j'ai effectué ce qui suit:

  • Tests neuropsychologiques sur des enfants roumains adoptés dans le Midwest
  • Recherche neuropsychologique sur les enfants du Wisconsin qui ont été maltraités
  • Recherche sur le cerveau d'enfants d'âge scolaire ayant eu des difficultés de traitement du langage, examinant les capacités limitées de la mémoire de travail

2003: BIENVENUE SUR LA GRANDE POMME

I started my clinical fellowship and later working with children of all ages (babies through adolescents) with varying learning needs. Speech, language, and feeding therapy Check. Reading and writing intervention Check. Socials skills remediation Check. My experiences working in early intervention in families homes and at a school in Queens plus working as an independent contractor for the Board of Education, with preschool and school age students, have led me to work with a diversity of family cultures and backgrounds. I also have training and experience with Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA), a type of therapy used with children diagnosed on the autism spectrum.

2005-2007 CLIMBING MT. SINAI

a travaillé comme orthophoniste pédiatrique à la division de pépinière thérapeutique de l'hôpital Mount Sinai de Manhattan de pédopsychiatrie. Ici, j ai enseigné (avec un enseignant en éducation spécialisée, un travailleur social et un assistant d enseignant) dans une crèche avec des soignants et leurs enfants intégrant un modèle pédagogique interdisciplinaire (chaque famille a été affectée à un psychiatre avec qui nous avons collaboré chaque semaine).

2007 HITTING THE CIRCUIT ET OHHHMMMM

J'ai commencé à parler aux parents, aux professionnels et aux écoles sur les retards de la parole et du langage dans la petite enfance. La même année, j'ai également collaboré avec un professeur de yoga, Marty New, créateur de Climb Time Yoga. Nous avons développé un programme intégrant la recherche scientifique contemporaine sur le développement cognitif et langagier sain avec des exercices de partenariat de yoga uniques; améliorer les liens émotionnels, sociaux et de communication entre le parent et l'enfant.

MONTESSORI MAGIC 2008

J'ai commencé à travailler en tant que spécialiste de l'apprentissage pour une école Montessori (les tout-petits jusqu'à la 6e année) à Manhattan en tant que spécialiste de l'apprentissage. Ici, j'ai travaillé en tête-à-tête et en classe pour aider les élèves ayant des difficultés d'élocution, de langage et d'apprentissage et j'ai collaboré avec leurs enseignants.

2009-2010 PAS DE SOMMEIL JUSQU'À BROOKLYN

Voulant être plus proche de ma capuche Park Slope, j'ai ouvert Brooklyn Letters à l'été 2010. Arrêtez-vous Bureau and introduce yourself! Don't live in the neighborhood Don't worry, my équipe peut probablement voyager dans votre maison.

2010 TOUJOURS À BROOKLYN. MAINTENANT IMPRESSIONNANT.

J'ai été présenté sur About.com expliquant et modélisant six techniques pour faciliter le développement de la parole et du langage dans la petite enfance et j'ai ensuite été filmé par About.com montrant comment enseigner les mots à vue (développement de la lecture).

2011 OFF EN INDE

J'ai présenté ma première conférence internationale avec Sarah Stuntebeck, orthophoniste Brooklyn Letters, à une école maternelle, The Study, (qui met l'accent sur l'apprentissage par le jeu) à New Delhi, en Inde.

2012 THEMBA TUTORS EST NÉ

Avec mon partenaire commercial, le Dr Blythe Grossberg, nous avons ouvert une entreprise de tutorat, pour tous les âges, offrant un tutorat dans toutes les matières de base, y compris des services pour ceux qui ont des différences d'apprentissage, la préparation aux tests, par exemple SAT, régents, SHSAT, etc. et l'apprentissage des adultes prestations de service. Ce qui distingue notre entreprise de la concurrence, c'est que nos tuteurs sont des professionnels ayant une formation académique et professionnelle rigoureuse dans des domaines liés à l'apprentissage et aux différences d'apprentissage.
