Dr Schneider offers psychoeducational evaluation, learning disorder (LD) identification, giftedness (high potential) identification, and educational diagnostic services, as well as high-quality, research-based intervention and instruction. She also prepares individualized education programs and detailed recommendations for school personnel and parents.


Dr Schneider is an internationally recognized expert in learning disorders and exceptionality 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.


Dr Schneider has devoted her career to the promotion of academic achievement among students with learning differences and developmental disorders, as well as those with other academic difficulties. In addition to her work as a secondary and post-secondary instructor, Dr Schneider owned and managed a tutoring company for nearly a decade, serving diverse students in an international border region, many of whom were challenged learning disorders or were non-native speakers of English. 


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.
