Renee Roberts, CALP

Renee Roberts received her B.S. in Elementary Education in1988

from The University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. Since then she

has been a classroom teacher in the 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th grades. She

has two sons who are seven years apart in age. Renee spent a little

over 25 years raising them and homeschooling them both through

High School. In 2015, when a fellow homeschooler’s daughter was

diagnosed with Dyslexia, Renee became acquainted with The

Children’s Dyslexia Center of Metropolitan Chicago. Having always

been interested in the etymology and syntax of the English language,

Renee was delighted to discover that through training at Children’s

Dyslexia Center, these interests could be more than just esoteric.

They could be put to the very practical use of teaching dyslexic

children to read!


Renee is an IMSLEC (International Multi-sensory Structured

Language Education Council) Certified Orton-Gillingham Teacher.

She is a Certified Academic Language Practitioner (CALP) through

ALTA (The Academic Language Therapy Association).

She is a Barton Tutor, trained inLindamood-Bell Lips, and is a State of Arizona Certified



In the spring of 2018, Renee and her husband Tim were very happy to

learn that they were moving from Chicago to Phoenix because of a

job transfer. Having found her work with dyslexic students in Illinois

very rewarding, Renee would like to continue to make a difference in

the lives of dyslexic students here in Arizona.
