Structured Literacy Therapy and Vision Therapy
“Dyslexia affects the brain’s ability to sound out letters, not the ability to see them”
There is a lot of confusion between structured literacy therapy and vision therapy and how they can help students learn to read. There is value to both services, but for very different reasons.
For a better understanding of Vision Therapy, you can watch this video by Dr. Kalynn Good who explains who vision therapy benefits.
If your child has reading or spelling difficulties, your first step is to contact a literacy specialist for an evaluation of their language processing skills. We have several free screeners available and offer a free consult.

Therapist Spotlight: Lisa DiGiovanni, M. Ed., SLDS
Lisa is a Reading Specialist and a certified Structured Literacy/Dyslexia Specialist. She has worked in public schools for over 20 years, where she helps struggling readers in grades K-5. After a few years working in public schools she realized that a small percentage of the students needed a different approach and model in order to truly get the help they needed to progress. She found Lexercise and Building Pathways in her quest for more information and training and has been working with them ever since. She enjoys working one-on-one with students from all over the country, and has been truly amazed at the progress they are able to make with this program.
When not teaching reading Lisa enjoys spending time with her two daughters and cruising around the lake on her pontoon boat!
