From the start, Janet Brof was a teacher. As a child, she would gather up playmates to dance to the sound of her mother's piano. At age three, when presented with a toy piano she asked, Where are my pupils?
For half a century pupils have been coming
for her fine-tuned observation and teaching where
they explore and even master prose and poetry writing.
As an educational therapist, she addresses
the needs of students with dyslexia, ADD,
non-verbal learning disability and dysgraphia.
Poet, writer, dancer, she brings to her students
a strong foundation in literature, psychology,
education, dance therapy and poetry writing.
She is a member of the International Dyslexic Association
and the Association of Educational Therapists.
Because of the brain's plasticity, the element of optimism
is central with her; she has witnessed how very often
those who have learning challenges,
will build, with sensitive guidance,
upon their unique gifts.
"Janet Brof has dealt successfully with the most subtle and recalcitrant kinds
of learning disabilities and with the most difficult cases in which others have
failed. I unhesitatingly recommend her."
