WDRB Interviews Dr. Maggie Wright about Learning Differences

Recently, Dr. Maggie Wright, a licensed psychologist with The Wright Psychology and Learning Center (and a St. Martha Mom), was interviewed by WDRB about learning disorders. In the article, Dr. Wright covers how certain learning differences can be diagnosed and managed as students are heading back to school.

Dr. Wright has been an invaluable advisor as we work to onboard new tools and resources at St. Martha, geared toward students with learning differences – specifically those with dyslexia.

At St. Martha, we are making a concerted effort to meet students where they are and address learning differences  Here’s an overview of new resources available to our students beginning this school year:

  • A Makerspace/STEM Lab open to all grades. This space will provide opportunities for students to “tinker” in a hands-on way. Students build critical thinking skills while working on real-world problems.
  • Lexia is an online program for all students preschool to 5th grade. It builds phonetic awareness and enhances reading skills on an individual basis.
  • Eight teachers are receiving training to implement the Barton Reading & Spelling System. This program support students who have dyslexia in becoming successful readers.
