Kelley has been a licensed Davis® facilitator since 2012. Since then she has worked with clients ranging in age from 6 to 76 years old and has helped clients overcome difficulties related to dyslexia, attention deficit disorder (ADHD), auditory processing disorder, dyspraxia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, balance, coordination, handwriting, math, Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), life skills…and the list goes on.
Kelley discovered the Davis® programs in 2003 while teaching for an online charter school. At the request of the parent of a student, Kelley read the book The Gift of Dyslexia and was amazed at how well the book described not only her student’s but her own children’s learning difficulties. Since that time, the Davis programs have become a way of life in her household, culminating with her licensure as a Davis Facilitator in 2012, to work with clients struggling in reading, attention, math or other academic or social areas.
In 2017, Kelley added her licensing to provide programs for individuals on the Autism Spectrum. Kelley brings a vast array of experience to her practice as a Davis® Facilitator. She has a BS in Elementary Education and Special Education from the University of Idaho and a Masters of Education, emphasis Literacy, from Eastern Oregon University.
As a certified Elementary and Special Education teacher, Kelley has worked with students of all ages and ability levels in multiple venues from traditional, international, remedial, homeschool, and virtual classrooms. As a parent of children identified with dyslexia, attention deficit disorder, dyspraxia, speech/ language disorders, and Asperger syndrome, Kelley understands the overwhelming pressure of trying to meet a child’s varying educational and emotional needs within the school system.
Kelley uses this experience as both a parent and an educator to help families and schools create the best possible accommodations and environment for students. She empowers parents and clients with skills to advocate for their best needs.
Kelley is excited to help clients become confident, accurate life-long learners!
She and her husband, Chuck, have eight children and live in Fruitland, Idaho.
“As a parent and teacher, I have witnessed too many similarities between how individuals process information and the type of difficulties they experience in life and learning NOT to believe that there is an underlying connection between the two. Finding the Davis programs was my ‘ah ha’ moment and I knew THIS IS THE KEY to unlock my children’s potential. It has literally changed our lives!”
