Betty Ann Judah, The Founder and Director of the Dyslexia & Learning Disability Center Inc.® earned a B.S. in Education and English Literature from Northwestern University as well as an M.S. in Guidance and Counseling from Purdue University. She has done post graduate work in learning disabilities at Purdue and Ohio State Universities and has studied with The International Dyslexia Association®. Additionally, she completed an internship and 8-year association with the Reading Research Council™.
In her work she incorporates tools using materials from Brain Gym®, Neurolinguistic Programming®, The International Dyslexia Association® (formerly The National Orton Dyslexia Society®), and The Davis Orientation Counseling Program™. To these skills she has added the many techniques she created from her own teaching and learning experiences as a Special Education teacher and guidance counselor for students from kindergarten through college. She has also worked extensively with adults, ages 4 through 85! The frustration and difficulties she experienced as a child serve her well in identifying with clients as she gently guides them on their path of discovery and success.
This unique approach of working with dyslexia results in a lifelong ability to correct and self-manage a condition which is commonly considered a disability but is in fact a gift. Additionally, these techniques are helpful in managing many other types of, so called, learning difficulties, such as ADD and ADHD, executive skill problems, memory difficulties, and attention and processing problems. Tens of hundreds of people (children and adults) have completed the training and now have the joy of successfully moving through life toward their destination.
Remember, dyslexics are bright, energetic, creative, entertaining and unique people waiting to be discovered!
