Sue Noel M.A.
Sue is one of earliest members of AZ Dyslexia Center. She became involved with this group to further facilitate the learning of students with dyslexia. She knows that the key to success for a greater number of students is to provide early intervention. If this happens, children can enter school at kindergarten with the prerequisite skills to become successful readers already in place.
Sue has the experience to be a successful partner in the learning process with the student and family. Students who start reading therapy in older grades have emotional difficulties to deal with as well as educational. She has the knowledge, experience and caring to make students and families know that they are getting the best intervention services available.
Sue earned her master’s degree in Reading and Language Arts with an endorsement in Learning Disabilities from Oakland University. She taught as a Reading Specialist in the East Valley for over 20 years, since relocating from Michigan, where she taught Reading to students in 5th-8th grade. She has an Arizona K-12 teaching certificate, with endorsements in Reading and Early Childhood.
Sue was the Director of Intervention at the East Valley ALLC, and has certification and/or training in many Orton-Gillingham based Reading programs, including Wilson Reading System, Barton Reading and Spelling System, The Sonday System, Foundations of Reading, and Lindamood-Bell (LiPS and Visualizing and Verbalizing).
As a former Executive Board Member of the AZ Branch of the International Dyslexia Association, Sue presented to university students, parents, and teachers about effective reading instruction for students with dyslexia.
