Children Having Individual Learning Differences (C.H.I.L.D.) is hosting a free workshop on dyslexia on Wednesday, May 4 at 7 p.m. in the Verona Community Center ballroom.

Ms. Fenster-Kuehl has a practice in Montclair and has evaluated children, adolescents and adults for over 20 years. She helps parents understand the terms and concepts used in the assessments and testing which are then used to identify diagnoses, determine educational and other needs, build remedial strategies, and monitor progress. She has published on the topic of learning disorders and presented to many parent groups.
Ms. Tighe, in addition to her practice as a speech and language therapist, has focused the past five years on working with children with language-based learning disabilities, specializing in reading and writing skills. She is a Wilson Reading Level 1 Certified Teacher, and is also trained in the Orton-Gillingham philosophy and Lindamood Bell Programs.
