Helping Your Child to Flourish by Getting to the Root of Learning Difficulties 


Dr Schneider provides psychoeducational evaluation services, identification of learning disorders (LD), and identification of high potential (HP) traits, as well as evidence-based intervention for students with learning difficulties. She also prepares individualized education programs and detailed recommendations for school personnel and parents. In addition, Dr Schneider offers inclusive English-language playgroups and lessons to kindergarten and primary school children of all linguistic backgrounds and abilities.


Dr Schneider is an internationally recognized expert in learning disorders, whose work in the fields of special education and educational psychology appears in the Journal of Reading Psychology, the International Dyslexia Association's Journal of Reading & Writing, the Sage Encyclopedia of Abnormal Clinical Psychology, the Wiley Encyclopedia of Clinical Psychology, Springer's Handbook of Intelligence, Brookes' Learning Disabilities and Challenging Behaviors, and Wiley's Woodcock-Johnson IV: Reports, Recommendations, and Strategies, among others. She has been invited to present her work at various international conferences, including the annual conferences of the International Dyslexia Association, the Council for Exceptional Children, the International Academy of Research in Learning Disabilities, and the Learning Disabilities Association.


On a personal note, Dr Schneider is an expat and mother of three daughters, one of whom is challenged by an LD, so she understands how difficult it can be to secure appropriate psychoeducational services for a child with an LD when living abroad.
