Our History 

Reading & Spelling Solutions was founded in 2003 by Susan C. Rosenthal, M.A in ED2 /AET. She is the lead instructor and program designer. Prior to starting Reading & Spelling Solutions, Mrs. Rosenthal taught in public schools and universities for twenty-five years, and worked as a program specialist for special education in California’s schools.  She was inducted into the National Registry of Outstanding American Teachers in 2006, and is a former President of the California Association of Program Specialists.

With over forty years of experience, she has developed a multi-faceted, scientifically-based method for successfully helping students with mild to moderate learning disabilities and dyslexia.  By using a diagnostic approach and combining several different state-of-the-art teaching programs, our students receive a personalized and extremely effective method of educational therapy.
