Don’t Take Our Word For It: Educational Specialist finds a (Learning) Ally in parents


Mary “Mo” Froneberger MAT is an Educational Specialist at the Pineville office of Child and Family Development.  

She works with children, teens and young adults, providing diagnostic evaluations and often making community recommendations.  A common suggestion is Learning Ally, a program that offers audiobooks to people with dyslexia and other learning differences.  

Recently, Mo received a note from the parents of a middle schooler she tested earlier this year.  Her comprehensive report included testing results as well as home and classroom ideas.  The family shared:

“…Learning Ally has been the best tool to help [our son] achieve confidence, a joy or reading and improvement in reading skills. This program…has been extremely beneficial to all of us and our well being.  Thank you for introducing it to us!” 

Mo and the other members of the pediatric therapy team are ready to help your student too!
