    A Literacy Intervention Specialist is a support staff member who works with students struggling in reading and writing or literacy.  Specifically, I teach students with dyslexia using a multi-sensory approach to learning strategies to assist them in reading and writing. My work also includes teaching small literacy groups in various grades.
