Ann Grove, CALT, LDP
My name is Ann Grove and I started this journey when my son was in first grade. He loved listening to others read and was very bright; however, when it came to reading independently, he clearly wasn't "putting all the pieces together". He would cry and call himself "dumb" and "stupid". As a parent, it broke my heart. I soon realized that despite my best efforts, I simply did not have the specialized skills required to help him (and neither did his classroom teachers). We tried some reading camps and other programs, but nothing seemed to meet his needs. It was then that I decided to leave my corporate job and focus my energy on learning more about the science of learning to read. I am now a Certified Academic Language Therapist and have the complete toolkit to help other families get the help they need. Over the last 8 years, I have worked in the public education sector teaching elementary and middle school students identified with dyslexia how to read, write and spell. I have seen over 100 students "bloom" before my eyes and become confident, happy readers. In 2014, I decided to take this journey to the next level and start my own reading center. The Reading Center of Fort Worth is exactly the place that I had searched for so many years ago.
Note: My son is in his senior year of high school and is now exploring colleges and universities. He has taken honors and AP courses throughout high school. He is my first success story, but I am proud to say I have had many others that followed.
Please feel free to contact me if you'd like to discuss your child's needs. I look forward to hearing from you and working with your child.
