Helping Exceptional Children Achieve Exceptional Outcomes


Dr Schneider is an internationally recognized expert in learning disorders and a full member of the American Psychological Association and International Dyslexia Association. Her 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.


Dr Schneider provides psychoeducational evaluation services, including the identification of learning disorders (LD) and the 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. 


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