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 and 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.
