LiteraSee Concepts Illustrated is a company whose mission is to provide structured literacy resources and visual aids for children in grades K - 8 with dyslexia or learning disabilities.
LiteraSee adheres to evidence-based interventions that include explicit teaching of literacy concepts, multisensory learning, phonics, phonemic awareness activities, syllable type/division strategies, and the study of morphology. LiteraSee emphasizes the origins of the English language and generalized spelling patterns for spelling variations. Students also study affixes and base words beginning in Level One to understand word construction and meaning. Lessons in basic grammar and parts of speech help students with reading, writing, and spelling! Additionally, LiteraSee infuses the lessons with rich vocabulary to aid background knowledge for better reading fluency and comprehension.
My main objective with LiteraSee is to create a quality product that is accessible and affordable, rooted in structured literacy. Flexibility is essential, so many lessons include optional advanced insights for older students, starting at Level One. LiteraSee strives to simplify the teaching process by offering step-by-step instructions, unscripted prompts, and reusable lesson plans. LiteraSee's learning platform is unique due to the many creative spelling strategies, memorable illustrations, vowel team storyboards, and engaging games.
My mission is to help you remediate reading and spelling struggles efficiently, affordably, and (most of all) joyfully. I hope you will enjoy teaching with LiteraSee as much as I do, and teachers, tutors, or parents like you!
Determined to engage my students fully, I designed visual aids depicting each literacy concept while training at the Children's Dyslexia Center. This collection of cards dramatically transformed how I tutor my students and their ability to retain and apply each lesson. I group the cards into categories to help make literacy connections and show "the big picture." After each lesson, I exhibit the corresponding concept card on the student's board to provide a convenient daily review. However, the most rewarding outcome of my work is the confidence and pride my students gain with each card added to their "wall of achievements."
After receiving my IMSLEC teaching certification, I realized that creating daily Orton-Gillingham-based, leveled lesson plans was unrealistic and time-consuming for most educators. LiteraSee was born from my passion for helping busy teachers, tutors, and homeschool parents access the same scope, sequence, and teaching methodology as trained O-G tutors.

Learning is easier when one has a visual and an auditory explanation. Seeing concepts grouped gives students a greater understanding of the big picture and provides an easily accessible review.
LiteraSee helps you teach struggling readers with science-based resources, sequential and structured lesson plans, memorable visual aids, and creative activities. LiteraSee focuses on phonemic awareness, phonics knowledge, spelling rules, syllable types, morphology, and reading skills for students from grades K- 8.
We want to make teaching literacy as enjoyable as it is effective, so we emphasize the learning process instead of rote memorization. Our unique teaching tools help children learn the strategies necessary to read and spell confidently.
