Hannah School

In 20 years as a speech language pathologist, I witnessed intelligent children struggle learning to read in spite of quality instruction. This led to a personal pursuit of intensive training on nationally recognized dyslexia intervention programs. The success my students experienced was unprecedented. This inspired me to open the Hannah School, the only school in Arkansas solely devoted to dyslexia. In these past five years, we have grown from servicing four students in my garage to a school of 65. My students are learning to read after years of illiteracy.
