As a mother, 25 years ago, Mahjabeen Sadik stumbled upon the term “dyslexia” and since then it has given her a professional identity. While gaining invaluable experiences in the process and exploring the many faces of dyslexia, the most intriguing and fascinating fact was the discovery of its unique strengths and gifts. The creative problem solving ability of the dyslexic mind motivated her to learn more about its nature and function.
In her pursuit of professional knowledge and skills, she got trained as an Orton-Gillingham specialist in 1987 in MA, USA. Her commitment to the field of education led her to pursue an advanced degree as well. She earned a Master’s degree in Education (M.Ed.) in Counseling Psychology/Education from Cambridge College, MA, USA.
Mahjabeen’s extensive knowledge on Orton-Gillingham has met the needs of many academically struggling students internationally. As an educational consultant she has designed Orton-Gillingham remedial programs and has successfully integrated the Orton-Gillingham strategies into existing mainstream school curriculum. Parents, teachers and educators have positively acknowledged its efficacy which has additionally promoted Orton’s work and the need for multisensory teaching. To keep her practice credible and legitimate she has aligned herself with the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators (AOGPE) USA, earning the Fellow status.
Mahjabeen founded Center for Assessment and Remmedial Education (CARE) in 1996. Her services at CARE include extensive theory and practice based Orton-Gillingham Teacher training program (preparing teachers for AOGPE, USA certification), Orton-Gillingham tutoring (group and individual) and Psychoeeducational/Diagnostic Educational Assessments. She continues to be an advocate for dyslexic learners and helps educators/schools in the facilitation and execution of the Orton-Gillingham Approach.
