FOR THE PAST TWENTY YEARS, Lois Letchford has been a literacy problem solver.

Specializing in teaching children who have struggled to learn to read, her creative teaching methods vary depending on the reading ability of the student, employing age-appropriate, rather than reading-age-appropriate, material. Several of her students have gone on to graduate from college.  

Her non-traditional background, multi-continental exposure, and passion for helping failing students have equipped her with a unique skill set and perspective. Originally a physical education teacher, she later completed a Master's in Literacy and Reading from the State University of New York at Albany. Lois has presented her work at The California Reading Association, Michigan Summer Institute, and New York State Reading Association conferences. She is co-president of the Albany City Reading Association and a member of the Australian College of Education. Lois continues to work with students to provide education and support to their teachers.

Reversed: A Memoir (Acorn Publishing), the story of her son's—and her own—learning disability, is her first book.
