About the Founder of The Reading Remedy:
Dr. Lipstein attended the University of Colorado, Boulder for undergraduate studies. Her degree program was in Physiological Psychology, which is the study of the brain and how it influences and directs behavior and learning. She went on to obtain a Dr. of Optometry degree from Pacific University College of Optometry in Forest Grove, Oregon. While at Pacific University, Dr. Lipstein also pursued and completed a Masters of Education in the Visual Function of Learning. She performed student teaching in a Title 1 remedial reading program in completion of her degree program. She is an associate member of COVD (College of Optometrists in Vision Development) and NORA (Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Association).
Dr. Lipstein reports that she is wearing her ‘educator’s hat’, drawing on her experience working with kids with vision-based reading and learning disorders. She found that kids had vision disorders that made it difficult for them to read but she often found that vision disorders co-exist with a learning disorder and amplify the learning problem. Once the vision problem is eliminated, the underlying learning disorder can be treated more effectively.
Her personal goal for this website is to help parents find direction so that they can make smart decisions on how best to help their child who is having difficulty reading and learning. Once a parent understands the underlying causes about why their child is having reading problems, then they can make proper choices on how to proceed to get help for their child.
About Our Dyslexia Education Specialists:
Jen Para and Julie O’Brien are the owners of the Multisensory Reading Center. They teach an online, Orton-Gillingham program called Lexercise. Jen, Julie and their colleagues possess the qualifications necessary to teach kids with dyslexia.

Once these basic skills are learned, a student can apply them and be successful through college level courses.

Eye Exercises to Treat Vision Disorder:
The Reading Remedy is very conservative in its recommendations of doctors who specialize in vision therapy. We need to be sure that the program offered is based on science and that each exercise is explained sufficiently to achieve the end result.
