Meet Lisa Brill
Certified Dyslexia Practitioner

Hi, I’m Lisa Brill and I am a Reading Specialist based in South Florida. My journey began almost two decades ago while working as a 4th Grade Reading Intervention Teacher in Boston, Massachusetts. Recently I celebrated my 10th year working as a K-5 Reading Specialist at a top-performing school in South Florida.
I have been so blessed to work with some of the most talented students & educators at some of the most amazing schools and am especially passionate about helping individuals with dyslexia receive high-quality, effective instruction grounded in the Science of Reading.
By Ascend Literacy
I offer tutoring services to children & adults with Dyslexia, in addition to consulting services for schools interested in implementing the Science of Reading. All of my services begin with a free intake.
by various age groups
Our brains may be wired for speaking, but they are actually not wired for reading and writing. Read below to learn more about how literacy skills evolve throughout a child’s development.
Birth - Age 3
Building a solid foundation in literacy begins at birth. How exactly does one read to an infant? Is my baby absorbing this story? These are all great questions with a not so complicated answer.
By the time your child has turned 4 their brains have already begun laying the foundation for Literacy. Now is the time to have more fun with the literacy activities you naturally engage in at home.
Kinder & 1st grade
Your reader is now ready to link speech sounds to letters to decode words, and will soon start to make sense of what they read. Get ready to look out for the many light bulbs during this phase!
