Who is Burnham Boehling and why Bee Smart Concepts?
While watching over the academic development of my six children, I became interested in learning style differences. That led to assisting the reading resource teacher with teaching phonics in a small group. The time spent at St. Edward School, Richmond, Virginia lit the spark to be ignited at Riverside School into a fire for teaching the fundamentals of the English language. I began in-service training in Language Fundamentals at Riverside School, a certified school for dyslexic children in Richmond, Virginia. In 1997 I received my certification from the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators, Armenia, New York. Following my 9 years of service at Riverside School, I devoted my time to tutoring gifted children with dyslexia in the high achieving private schools and environmentally deprived children enrolled in an after school program. The after school program was a new challenge.
Consequently, to avoid more worksheets, I designed games to reinforce mastery of the skills necessary to develop fluency in reading and spelling according to multisensory techniques as prescribed by the Orton-Gillingham approach and found them effective. Offerings by Bee Smart
Concepts are available in
two general categories; Card and Board games.
Responding to parent and teacher’s request for knowledge of the remedial process, as prescribed by the Orton-Gillingham Multisensory Approach, I co-authored a teacher manual and student practice book, Intervention without Tension, with Jean Claud, Language Fundamentals Teacher / Consultant. The manuals complement the Bee Smart method of implementing the Orton-Gillingham approach for early intervention. Parents, teachers and tutors are currently and successfully being trained by Bee Smart Concepts in the approach and use of the teacher manual and student practice book for the remediation of specific language disability.
