Patty VanDerhyden-McBratneyPresident & Founder
PATRICIA VANDERHYDEN-MCBRATNEY, M.A., an educational therapist in private practice, founded LITE in 1998 to encourage public schools in Santa Barbara, California, to implement screenings of all kindergarteners for possible reading failure and implement preventative reading teaching techniques in kindergarten, first and second grade classrooms.
Patty emphasizes the sensory-cognitive processes that are required for reading and literacy independence and has had enormous success teaching students of all ages with reading difficulties how to read and learn successfully.
Previous to her private practice, Patty had worked in public schools as a resource specialist, reading specialist, multi-media specialist and classroom teacher.She holds three California specialist teaching credentials, plus a multi-subject credential, with a Master of Arts in Reading and Language Arts.
Patty supports the current research that shows when kindergarteners are screened for potential reading failure and then taught reading, spelling and literacy through preventative methods, their lives can be saved from reading failure and damaged self-esteem.
Nancy and Patty passionately believe that these children can learn to read well IF: All kindergarteners are assessed for possible reading failure and all kindergarten, first and second grade students receive specific, explicit instruction in the regular classroom.
Patty and Nancy have had the opportunity to see the incredible success students can have when given appropriate treatment and remediation based on the cognitive principles of how the human brain learns and processes information.
