Reading and Writing
Reading is a complex process of obtaining meaning from symbols involving phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. Writing is a skill requiring knowledge of symbols to communicate by the use of handwriting or typing also involving motor and information processing skills. Dyslexia is a neurological condition affecting the ability to read, write, and spell without a relationship to intelligence. Dysgraphia and/or dyscalculia may also be present with a reading disorder. Dysgraphia is a writing disability affecting handwriting, spelling, and organizing letters. Dyscalculia is a learning disability affecting mathematic abilities.
Bailey Holzhausen is a Certified Academic Language Therapists (CALT) and licensed speech-language pathologist who has a special interest in working with all ages of individuals who have pre-literacy and reading, writing, and spelling difficulties. She has been working with dyslexics and individuals who have learning difficulties since graduating from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. She received advanced training in Take Flight, a tier III comprehensive intervention for students with dyslexia/reading difficulties, created by the staff of the Luke Waites Center for Dyslexia and Learning Disorders at Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. Bailey provides screening and intervention (Academic Language Therapy) for dyslexia/reading difficulties.
Bailey believes individuals given the right instruction are capable of reading, spelling, and writing. She hopes to foster a love for literacy, while instilling confidence and self-advocacy, by creating an individualized care plan in order for individuals to use their strengths to succeed. She hopes Pediatric Communication Solutions will be a safe place for readers and writers to be their genuine selves and feel comfortable while engaging with new material. Teaching will be multisensory and engaging as learners discover the predictability of the English language.
