ANGIE'S STORY

Hi! I'm Angie Randak!

Angie Randak and her son who has dyslexia.

I began my journey into dyslexia tutoring when my son was identified as dyslexic. He was tutored using the Barton Reading and Spelling System, and it changed his life. As I watched my son go through the program, he regained his self-esteem, learned how to read and spell, and achieved the academic success he craved.


After witnessing my own child’s experience, I knew I wanted to help others who struggle with dyslexia. I sought training in dyslexia screening and obtained certification in the Barton Reading and Spelling System. In 2011, I launched Randak Dyslexia Services.


My team of trained tutors and I love to help children at all grade levels (and even adults) overcome dyslexia. We can't wait to meet you!

SIGNS OF DYSLEXIA

Does your child or someone you know have difficulty with...

Reading? Writing? Spelling? Math?

They may have dyslexia, meaning they process language differently.

And they're not alone. It it estimated that 15-20% of people have dyslexia.

Possible Signs of Dyslexia:

  • Trouble with sight words (the, would, because, etc.)

  • Slow and inaccurate reading

  • Messy handwriting

  • Poor Spelling

  • Letter reversals beyond first-grade ("b" instead of "d")

  • Confuses left and right

  • Frequent ear infections as a young child

  • Difficulty remembering math facts


Dyslexic people's brains process language differently. Traditional methods for learning to read, spell, and do math may not be as effective for them. Orton-Gillingham-based programs like the Barton Reading & Spelling System provide an alternative approach designed specifically for the dyslexic students.

SCREENING

Do we conduct dyslexia testing?

Angela Randak has been trained by the international dyslexia authority, Susan Barton, to screen all students kindergarten and older.

The screening determines if a child has the symptoms of not only dyslexia, but also of dysgraphia – a condition that frequently occurs with dyslexia causing difficulty with the physical act of writing. Finally, we give a brief assessment for Irlen Syndrome, a light sensitivity condition often coexisting with dyslexia. Screening results and suggested school accommodations are put together in a written report.

WE OFFER 3 DIFFERENT LEVELS OF SCREENING, SHOWN BELOW
