Consulting With Parents

Consulting with parents

$50 per hour

Mrs. Hall is happy to consult with parents, whether it is because they are wondering where to start with getting testing or what options are avaialble to them in getting the help their dyslexic child needs.  A consulting appointment is set, and parents send a list of topics they know they want to cover, although the discussion may veer away from that list as any aspect of dyslexia may be discussed. 

Homeschooling families who want to talk with a dyslexic specialist to help with understanding how to tweak the material presented can also benefit from a consulting hour.
