Welcome to Bay Tree Blog!
I’m Anne-Marie Morey, a board certified educational therapist. My husband and I created this blog to share the very best information on the web for educating and supporting children with learning disabilities.
When I first started teaching kids with dyslexia and other learning disabilities, it seemed as though I was working with kids with insurmountable challenges. How on earth was I going to help these students make real changes? How could I do more than just dole out Band-Aids? Heck, it seemed like half the time, I was working hard just to get the student to sit in the chair!
That’s when I discovered educational therapy. It was my lightbulb moment! Intensive, explicit, rigorous teaching wasn’t enough. It’s a great foundation, but to truly help these students succeed, they needed me to empathize, play, and recognize their talents.
I started Bay Tree Blog so I could share the most effective methods that work for my students:
- Here are my favorite teaching tools that I wish someone had shown me when I first started.
- Here’s my favorite post of all time, on how to help kids who say they’re feeling down about themselves.
- Here are some of our most popular (and free!) tools for letter reversals and executive function.
Thank you so much for joining me here. We’ve got a big job on our hands, but I think together we can make a big difference.
