Welcome to the Together in Literacy Podcast! This is our inaugural episode and we are so excited to share our love of literacy with you.
Who are we? We are Emily Gibbons and Casey Harrison. We’re both in the OG business (Orton-Gillingham, that is) trained and certified. We love talking about dyslexia advocacy and dyslexia awareness. We both have online businesses and tutoring practices. We both used to be in the classroom but now we’re in private intervention. And, we’re both twin moms! Fun fact, we’ve never actually met each other in person.
In this episode, we’ll share more about ourselves and our motivation for starting this podcast. Tune in to find out how we became literacy and dyslexia advocates and our plans for using this podcast as a platform to help educators, families, and students understand dyslexia and the connection to self-esteem and social-emotional growth.
