Laura Reiff has been a special education teacher in the city of Chicago for over ten years. Her expertise in this field has inspired her to write children’s books with a passionate mission to lift the negative stigma of Special Education by planting the seeds of understanding and compassion through self-esteem.  Her first book is in development.  It is an inspirational story about a young girl coping with dyslexia. In this, the first book of the series, Naomi Noodles faces the confusion of being told she is dyslexic, and the trials and tribulations of realizing how dyslexia can affect one’s life outside of just the learning environment. With a little help from a very special friend, Naomi begins to learn how to triumph over issues of bullying and family problems associated with her learning disability. Along the way she discovers just how wonderful, amazing and splendiferous she truly is.

Laura is also the creator of www.about-special-education.com, a website dedicated to supporting the needs of parents of children with learning disabilities.  Laura offers valuable resources for parents and informational articles, on her blog, based on her expertise in the field.  She also offers a coaching program for parents acting as their guide and mentor through the sometimes scary world of Special Education.
