Michelle Schwartz, M.S., CCC-SLP

I am a speech-language pathologist and literacy specialist whose passion is helping students grow into a love for learning and reading, and reducing barriers that lead to frustration and task avoidance. My approach is gentle, kind, focused on the whole child, and I bring fun and inspiration into each session.

Subjects taught: Orton-Gillingham based literacy treatment, intervention for language-based processing disorders

Teaching style: Direct, play-based for younger children (as needed)

Qualifications: Trained in Orton-Gillingham Levels 1 and 2, M.S. in Speech-Language Pathology with Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language Hearing Association, Licensed by the MN Department of Health and Education, member of International Dyslexia Association, and CHADD (Association for Children and Adults with ADHD)
Experience: 20 years as a hospital-based speech-language pathologist, Orton-Gillingham tutor since 2013. I have worked with many children who are struggling readers/spellers, and who may also have ADHD, executive-skill dysfunction, speech-language issues, oppositional-defiant issues, working-memory deficits, anxiety and issues of low self-esteem. I assist families in navigating their child's educational journey and can give recommendations on when/if psycho-educational testing is indicated. I help connect parents to local support resources based on the child's needs.

Class size: 1-2 students per session (sessions are typically individual, but a small group could be negotiated).
