Meet Theresa. 

Over the last 20 years she has provided families with a wealth of knowledge and services.  Mrs. Rohm began her career in Buffalo, NY working as a Speech Therapist and provided Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy for children with Autism and related disabilities. 

She earned her Master’s degree in Special Education (K-12) with a reading concentration.  Her Master’s project on the topic of Picture Exchange Communication decreasing aggression in children with Autism was submitted for publication by her professor. Mrs. Rohm has written many Behavior Intervention Plans (BIP) and has worked closely with multi-disciplinary teams to improve behaviors in children. 

From there Mrs. Rohm worked as an Education Specialist in the public school system and was utilized by the administration in a variety of roles. 

From teaching self contained classrooms, piloting a co-taught model of instruction and leading teacher trainings, Mrs Rohm brings vast experience to help students succeed.

Over the years , Mrs Rohm’s innate ability to differentiate instruction to all kinds of learners , has been applauded by parents, administrators and fellow teachers. She is a strong example and advocate of the least restrictive environment (LRE).

The districts she worked for in NY and CA trained her in the Wilson and Barton Reading Systems, both which use the multi-sensory, Orton Gillingham approach. Mrs. Rohm truly believes in the principles of Orton Gillingham and aheres to the proven methodology.

In 2014, Mrs. Rohm was asked to oversee an inclusion program that mainstreamed children with disabilities.  This experience challenged her as she was often the facilitator and mediator during intense IEP meetings between the families and district she worked for. 

Her ability to effectively case manage as well as teach and advocate for her students was highly respected amongst her colleagues and her families.

At the University

In 2020, Mrs. Rohm was hired by Cal-State East Bay as a university supervisor observing college students in their fieldwork experience and assessing their mastery of California teaching standards.

Pursuing Her Passion

After leaving public education, Mrs Rohm chose to follow her passion — building a child’s confidence through reading intervention — And advocating and educating families through every step of the IEP process.

"Thank you for putting your trust in me to help guide your family through the complex education system, it really does take a village." –Theresa Rohm
