Adventures in Speech, Language and Literacy’s 

Natasha Richards has worked as a speech language pathologist in schools for over 10 years.  As a school based speech language pathologist, the majority of her caseload was children with reading and writing difficulties. She has provided teacher training, parent training, group therapy and individual therapy.  Over-and-over again she heard teachers and parents alike saying they wish they had this training earlier. Natasha is passionate about equipping teachers and parents to help their struggling readers and writers.  Nothing is quite as rewarding as seeing kids who avoided reading come in excited to show off their favorite new book!
