Lydia Allen

Lydia Allen, Program Director

Lydia graduated from Hollins University with a Bachelor of Arts in English. Her training includes Wilson Reading System, Neuhaus Reading Readiness, Neuhaus Written Expression, Handwriting Without Tears, Barton Reading and Spelling System Tutor training, and over 30 hours of Orton-Gillingham training from a Fellow of the Academy of Orton-Gillingham. Lydia volunteered with the Literacy Council of Alabama’s Journey into Dyslexia workshop in 2016. Before joining Read Write in 2016, Lydia Price was a teaching assistant at both the Washington Literacy Center in Washington, D.C. and The Learning Alliance in Vero, FL.

Lydia’s favorite part of working at Read Write is working one-on-one with students because she understands what it’s like to learn with dyslexia.  “As a dyslexic, I find that I have a firsthand understanding of both the emotional and the intellectual components of learning to read. In this way, I think my specialty is empathy.” Lydia is excited to expand Read Write's services to Montgomery starting in September 2018!
