Angela Brillhart works to break down barriers for those who struggle with dyslexia. She has studied educational therapies for learning disabilities throughout her career and has had a successful and long-lasting impact on many students from Bend, Oregon. Dyslexia is poorly understood in the public education system, and funding is scarce, so private tutoring is often necessary. Angela has followed her passion for helping students solve their problems with reading, writing, math, handwriting, and more. Believing in the power of the individual and their unique abilities, while persisting against stereotypes that these limitations can’t be overcome, Angela helps students identify their strengths, barriers and help students find their pathways for success.
Angela is a member of the International Dyslexia Association and is becoming certified in the Slingerland ® Approach in multisensory methods to overcoming learning disabilities. She is experienced in Orton-Gillingham methods that focus on solutions that engage the student as an individual. After meeting with a student, Angela applies the most appropriate resources for the individual. It’s not a race; students work at their own pace and optimize their development. Students find the support and skills they need when they work with Angela.
