Cook’s Evaluation

It’s a comprehensive assessment approach for a student’s literacy skills, taking into account various factors that may impact their performance. By observing the student’s sensory acute response to stress, we can gather information about how they react to challenging situations, which can inform how you design instructional strategies that help them regulate their emotions and maintain focus.

By considering the student’s interest survey and overall behaviors based on executive, somatic, and autonomic functioning, you can gain a deeper understanding of their learning style and preferences, as well as their overall physical and emotional well-being. I can help you create a more personalized and effective plan for supporting the students with the following:  


Specific Learning Disability (SLD)

Specific Language Impairment (SLI)

Visual Processing Disorder (VPD)

Auditory Processing Disorder (APD)


Central Processing Disorder (CAPD)

Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)

Autism plus Irlen Syndrome

Twice Exceptionality (2e)/Gifted and Talented


including Social/Emotional (Anger/Shame) Domain

Gifts, Strengths, & Special Interest


Dyslexia is a learning disability that affects a person’s ability to read, write, and spell. It is a neurological disorder that affects the way the brain processes information. Dyslexia is a common disorder, affecting approximately 10% of the population. It is important to understand the characteristics of dyslexia to help those who struggle with it such as in the following ways:

One of the main characteristics of dyslexia is difficulty connecting letters to sounds. People with dyslexia have trouble identifying speech sounds and learning how they relate to letters. When they omit sounds, they might also sound confusions such as repetition(s), substitution(s), addition(s) or delete altogether. Additionally, transversal(s) and reversal(s) are more common in students with visual processing difficulties. Note: “One highly cited study showed that around 80 percent of children with dyslexia had both phonological and surface dyslexia, while 20 percent had only one of the two.”

It is important to note that dyslexia is not a sign of intelligence or lack of effort. People with dyslexia may have normal or above-average intelligence, but their reading and writing abilities do not match their intellectual abilities. They may have difficulty with phonemic awareness, which is the ability to identify and manipulate the individual sounds in words. Individuals with dyslexia and other learning differences may also have difficulty with working memory, which is the ability to hold information in the mind while using it to complete a task. This can make it difficult for them to remember spelling rules or read fluently.

      Additional Information:
      I am passionate about fostering a safe and non-judgmental space. Neurodiversity is a fact. It simply means that everyone’s brain is unique. Some forms of neurodiversity can be more challenging than others. When the challenges are great enough, society tends to label them as “deficits.” As the new Wellness Coach at CReW: Creative, Resourceful & Whole, I am committed to facilitating epigenetic modifications and helping individuals by incorporating four IRAO elements. The Epigenetic IRAO method aims to create lasting change and transformation. It recognizes the power of epigenetics, which refers to the environmental factors that can influence gene expression and impact our physical and mental well-being.
