In medicine, if research found new ways to save lives, health care professionals would adopt these methods as quickly as possible, and would change practices, procedures and systems.


Educational research has found new ways to save young minds by helping them to become proficient readers; it is up to us to promote these new methods throughout the education system. Young lives depend on it.

-Louisa C. Moats, Ed.D.

  • Comprehensive record review

  • Evaluation of current/prospective literacy programs

  • Participation at school PPT/IEP meetings

Research shows that all but 2-3% of students can become proficient readers, yet a whopping 20-30% are not given the tools they need to achieve this goal.

Through the use of informal and formal assessment tools and observations, we can help to isolate a student’s specific literacy needs — then collaborate with other support team members to ensure that these needs are being effectively addressed through the use of evidence-based practices, including the Orton-Gillingham approach, coupled with complementary supports that enable the student to be successful in the classroom.  

LLAC has a particular expertise in working with individuals with more complex diagnoses — such as those with intellectual disabilities, social or emotional challenges, physical limitations, or difficulties with expressive language.
