To schedule an evaluation and therapy with Aliza, please call 402-480-3152.

Speech-language pathologists play a critical and direct role in the development of literacy by assessing, diagnosing, and treating written language disorders, including dyslexia. SLPs have unique knowledge about the subsystems of language (i.e., phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics) as they relate to spoken and written language and knowledge of metalinguistic skills required for reading and writing.

Communication Works speech-language pathologist, Aliza Stremlau, has specialized training in Orton-Gillingham multi-sensory reading methodology and techniques. She offers services for individuals who have reading challenges characterized by one, some, or all of these symptoms:

  • Difficulty with phonological awareness and phonics
  • Difficulty with accurate and fluent word recognition
  • Difficulty with spelling and spelling rules
  • Poor reading comprehension
  • Poor written language skills

Orton-Gillingham uses a language-based multisensory, structured, sequential approach to reading. Aliza combines her knowledge of speech and language with the OG Approach to provide a specialized program of instruction not found elsewhere.

Aliza uses the Orton-Gillingham Approach and skilled speech-language therapy techniques to develop literacy skills.
