My Complete My ELBERT program also includes the important help for the triune brain which includes the following: Brainstem- I have a fight, flight and freeze sympathetic/parasympathetic which is called My ELBERT The Learning Uniquenesses Checklist: The Ultimate SEL Checklist; Midbrain- a screening for vestibular, proprioceptive, somatic issues, along with speech/language development, auditory and visual processing; Limbic- My lesson plan template that includes the 4 F’s: Facts, Forms/Functions, Feelings & Future along with a progress monitoring tool; Cordial- holistic, alternative suggestions for taking care of the whole child’s individual, dynamic needs. Lastly, my program, My ELBERT, includes a self-guided literacy intervention program because literacy (speaking, writing, reading, etc) heals the soul. I offer online training, specialized intervention, and other coaching through a course on understanding Dyslexia and consulting (first one Free)!

What is neurodiversity?

People with dyslexia and other forms of neurodiversity have sound and language processing problems. They will struggle to connect letters to sounds and, mainly difficulties identifying speech sounds and learning how they relate to letters and words; as well, those with visual processing difficulties struggle to understand visual information such as letters, shapes, or objects and problems processing the graphic symbols (mainly, problems with convergence). Other difficulties related to the absorption and processing of sounds [sounds especially can be omitted from words by the student], students with dyslexia most commonly omit letter sounds, words, phrases in the middle position, then the end, and least commonly the beginning. When they omit, they might do sound confusions such as repetition(s), substitution(s), addition(s) or delete altogether, on the other hand; transversal(s) and reversal(s) are more common in students with a visual processing difficulties. P.S. I suggest -have them remember: if it doesn’t look or sound right reread or rewrite till your brain feels like “it’s just right” [trust your brain-you are smart, you can do it, and you are love]. Ask me how I can help you by tutoring, coaching, consulting and/or training! [Retrieved from https://myelberteveryonelearnsbetterembracingrevolutionaryteaching.com/author/tcookedu/].

Published by Tricia Cook, MEd., Online Dyslexia and Behavioral Interventionist, RSP, AA O-G Tutor & Montessorian

My interest is in helping parents and teachers to understand learning and behavioral challenges and to love learning again. I graduated from Auburn in ECE in 1998. I have been a Montessori teacher here in Birmingham for almost 12 years and have lived in Birmingham for the past 19 years. As an early childhood teacher, I want continue to grow and develop as a constant learner. In 2012, I graduated from Secondary Education with a P-12 Reading Specialist certification the University of Alabama. As a Reading Specialist, I train on diversity and literacy development; I have a specialized knowledge of assessment and diagnosis that is vital for developing, implementing, and evaluating your literacy and neurodiversity behavioral, character development programing. Also, I have varying experiences designing instruction and environments for Montessori and Non-Montessori (OSR-Pre-K) environments. Therefore, I can consult for any environment or setting! In 2013, I attained my highly qualified status in ECE and Reading. In 2013, I also got my Orton-Gillingham AA tutor certification. I currently tutor full-time along with consulting. I have actually been tutoring since 2003. Along with other independent tutoring/interventionist experiences, I have brought dozens of students from an emergent to an advanced reading level! In addition to tutoring, I have provided the reading strengths and needs of my students and share that information to classroom teachers, parents, specialized teachers, and other stakeholders.  Lastly, I have also been a trainer/presenter, since 2008 and really enjoy this aspect of my career. As an experienced trainer, I have trained on many topics including: literacy (the five components), classroom management, positive discipline, diversity character development, Montessori Philosophy, policies and procedures, child development, and Alabama's Pre-k. Take note: Schools and families are desperately looking for an alternative type of affordable multi-sensory, hands-on, and interesting instruction. Currently, I am training and interested in writing on the following topics: A Comparison of Pre-K to Kindergarten; Adolescent Literacy (7th+); Assessment; Developing Readers; Children’s Literature; Classroom Management Techniques; Comprehension; Montessori Philosophy; Environmental Print & Early Writing; Family Attachment; Language and Literacy; Outdoor Classroom; Poetry Writing (7th+); Positive Guidance; Fine-motor Development; Cursive Writing; Creative Writing; Comprehension: Study Skills/Test Taking Strategies; Morphology; Phonics Instruction; Diversity Education; Neurodiversity Education; HandWriting; Reading Strategies; Best Practices P-12.
