We Are Ready.
Greetings! I’m Chase Wesley, an educational diagnostician and dyslexia therapist. My interests include academic assessment and the reading development and instruction of students with learning differences.
A bit of background about me
After graduating from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor,MI, I became a teacher through Teach for America in Newark, New Jersey. I was placed as a special education teacher in a language learning special education classroom and was “green”…beyond “green” and hadn’t the first clue about individualized education plans or multi-sensory instruction.
Even as a special education neophyte, sixteen families entrusted me with their children - all of who had learning differences and were eager to learn.
My students taught me a lot that first year, namely what “grit” and sheer determination look like when something is not just difficult, but darn near impossible, as well as, what a community of trust looks like, when one believes they may not be good at something but trust their “teammates” will still be encouraging. I’m grateful for that first class as they extended those same courtesies to me.
Due to my first couple of years as a special education teacher, I made it my mission to learn how to tackle learning challenges of students with specific learning disabilities such as dyslexia and dysgraphia. I was determined to find strategies that worked, not just strategies that sounded good in theory.
I’ve spent over a decade teaching students with learning differences, developing curriculums and programs for children requiring specialized instruction, training teachers, and assessing children with learning challenges.
I founded Mint Education Consulting to share the researched and tested strategies I’ve learned along the way with students, parents, and educators and am looking forward to connecting with each of you. If there is a topic you’d like covered during one of our blog posts or you just want to reach out to say, “Hi!,” please don’t hesitate –– our “door” is always open!
To bringing out the best in your child,
