About the Teacher
Degrees and Certifications:
Academy of Orton-Gillingham Associate International Dyslexia Association Dyslexia Practitioner
Ms. Joan Richardson - Speech Language Pathologist
I have been a speech and language pathologist for over 25 years and have worked in a variety of settings both educational and medical and have been a reading teacher for 8 years.
I earned a B.S. in Education and a M.S. in Speech-Language Pathology from Northeastern University. In 2006, I went back to school and earned a M.Ed. in Reading from Bridgewater State University. And because there is always something new to learn, I became an Associate of the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators.
When not advocating for students and teachers, I can usually be found spending time with family, friends, riding by some beautiful beach on my bike, at the gym or on my yoga mat.
