Help for Struggling Readers and Writers, and Dyslexia

Reading involves phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, comprehension, and fluency. It’s so important to know which areas a reader is struggling with. Phonemic awareness is the building block. Readers need to combine auditory (hearing) and kinesthetic (feeling) feedback so they can accurately self-check sounds within words. Readers also need to visualize sounds and letters (symbol imagery) in order to remember sight words and read more fluently. With the right methods, materials and interventions, struggling readers CAN close the reading gap. Your child can blossom into a confident reader! 

Being able to “see the whole” is key to comprehension. But many people struggle with “making pictures in your mind’s eye” (concept imagery), and then connecting those parts to make a “whole picture”. This must be explicitly taught in order to comprehend oral and written language, and improve higher level thinking skills. If a person struggles with comprehension, it affects so many areas of their lives, especially as they move on into middle school, high school and beyond. Remediating the root causes of comprehension difficulties can be a life-changer for struggling readers!


Writing is a complex process that involves putting together handwriting, spelling, vocabulary, grammar, and different writing styles. But writing requires much more! It’s being able to communicate and share thoughts through the written word. While spelling difficulties stand out for many learners, it’s often the underlying comprehension and organization pieces that are the most difficult. Using a variety of multisensory methods, materials, and the right interventions, struggling writers can gain the needed writing tools to get their ideas down without the heartache!


A comprehensive assessment identifies strengths and needs. Using these results, I develop an individualized intervention plan to meet the goal of being an independent reader and writer as quickly as possible. It takes training, diagnostic knowledge and experience to move struggling learners from testing to intervention to success at a rapid pace. That means constantly adjusting my teaching based on how the learner is doing at that moment. I have years of diagnostic experience to help your struggling reader and writer close the learning gap to their potential!

“Cindy Zmuda worked with my son using these methods. In six months, he gained three years in reading, and went from being a non-reader to reading at the third grade level. Her caring way, ability to connect with my son, and creative ways to adjust methods and materials to meet his needs made all the difference! She truly changed his life!” … mother of a student
