Is your child struggling to read?

The unexpected inability to read is the hallmark of dyslexia.

Studies show that about 50-65% of all readers require structured literacy to learn to read proficiently. Any student can benefit from O.G. intervention, whether a student struggles with diagnosed dyslexia, an oral and written language deficit, or simply has trouble decoding/encoding words (spelling and writing difficulties), an Orton Gillingham multi-modal instruction can help bridge the learning gap.

About Literacy Reading Academy

My name is Melisa Liberto and I am the owner and facilitator of the Literacy & Reading Academy.

I believe strongly and firmly that every single person can be taught to read. Furthermore, I believe it is my calling and purpose to bring literacy to as many children as possible.  Building the foundations for successful reading and literacy should begin as early as possible, there is no child too young to begin a structured literacy program.

I earned a B.A. in English with a focus in grammar from The Masters University in 2005. I then received my M.A. in English with a concentration in literature from California State University of Northridge in 2007. In 2022 I began another graduate program for reading remediation and structured literacy through San Diego University. I have completed all of my graduate coursework, and I am currently completing my practicum for full Orton Gillingham certification; my second Masters Degree for Reading & Literacy is in progress. I have worked at all levels of education for the last 18 years, with a interim period when I stayed at home to have my children.

I have worked at the university level, the secondary junior high/high school level, and I am currently working in a third grade classroom.

I started this academy to help support parents who are unable to give their kids the tools they need for proper intervention and are seeking a highly trained, certified educator to help bridge the learning gap.
