Stephanie G., Ph.D

Orton-Gillingham Assessment Specialist

I am passionate about helping others overcome challenges. Upon completing Orton-Gillingham (OG) Plus training with Fran Bowman in 2012, I immediately fell in love with my role as an academic therapist. To be honest, it has never really felt like "work." Creating games and activities, helping my students improve their skills, and collaborating with parents and children's support teams are the most fulfilling job requirements I can imagine. ​

In addition to helping students, I offer support and guidance to parents who experience frustration, confusion, and difficulty while trying to help their children grow into successful young adults. I also collaborate with the members of children’s support teams, including therapists, teachers, school counselors, advocates, and speech-language pathologists.

Finally, understanding the challenges that come along with trying to meet goals at work, I also help professionals strengthen their time management, organizational, and other executive skills as they progress through their careers.

​Since I take a strengths-based approach, I spend a lot of time getting to know each of my clients and their needs so I can design individualized instruction and approaches to support their success.

I received a Ph.D. in Criminology and Criminal Justice in 2000 from the University of Maryland and was trained in Orton-Gillingham "Plus" in 2012. In addition to helping others achieve success, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two boys, playing the violin, practicing yoga, taking walks, and reading.
