A Bit About Me...
Rosaura is an Educational Therapist who works with students of all ages. She supports students with many types of challenges, from ADHD, Asperger's, CAPD, and Dyslexia, Sensory Processing. Also, student's with Dysgraphia and Dyscalculia.
She is a Bay Area native and born in Martinez, CA. She went to all the public schools in Martinez and is familiar with most schools in Central Costa and Solano counties.
She knows personally what a parent goes through when a child struggles in school. Her son was diagnosed by a Neuropsychologist with Dyslexia when he was in the eighth grade. It was very heartbreaking to see her son struggle in school and watch his self-esteem drop.
As a parent she learned to advocate for her son and provided him with the appropriate resources for his education. During the course of providing her son the very best resources for his condition, she discovered the field of Educational Therapy. This was her turning point. She went back to school to become an Educational Therapist so she could assist other struggling students and parents.
