East Bay educational specialist Laura Denton assists teachers, school administrators, parents, and students in Oakland, Berkeley, Alameda, Albany, Orinda, Lafayette, Moraga, and beyond. Laura Anne Denton, EdD, BCET, NCED brings a broad range of experience to her work as a diagnostician and an educational therapist, including more than 20 years as a California educator. She holds California teaching credentials in both general and special education with additional endorsements for Reading; Cross-cultural, Language & Academic Development (CLAD); and Administration. Dr. Denton is a Board Certified Educational Therapist (BCET) and a Nationally Certified Educational Diagnostician (NCED). Earlier in her career, she taught in Pennsylvania, New Mexico, and Wyoming.

To provide practical recommendations for instructional strategies, curricula, and accommodations, Dr. Denton draws from her advanced knowledge of reading, language and learning disabilities, formal and informal assessment, and the effects of the learning environment on a student’s ability to learn and to demonstrate that learning. Her professional interests lie in the intersections between disability categories, and her goal is to increase communication between the various specialists who work with students with atypical learning needs.

This is the second time I’ve worked with Dr. Laura Denton, and her instructional recommendations are always helpful. I read the report and know what to change in my instructional program. Her recommendations are what I aspire to include in a balanced instructional program. Close Quote

We cannot begin to express our appreciation. For the first time in months we feel there is hope that our child will eventually read. Last evening was the first time I smiled in months. When my mother called last night to find out what happened, she could hear the difference in my tone. Close Quote

Laura, again, did an outstanding job working with this family and school staff. The information provided was very practical and useful. The team has a better framework for helping the student understand his disability and his needs. Unquote

The depth of your experience is amazing. We especially appreciated that you did not use a lot of technical terms. One of the most difficult aspects of this process is that reports we’ve received from others use a lot of jargon and we have to spend a lot of time figuring out what it all means. Yours were understandable. Thank you for being so clear and specific about exactly what we need to focus on. You gave us something we can really hold onto. Unquote
