Who We've Worked With
"Dr. Ortiz was instrumental in designing our literacy offerings. She conducted focus groups with our clients to better understand their needs, did the research to select assessment tools, and trained our partners on multiple literacy topics from evidence based literacy practices, assessing literacy needs and the best ways to incorporate reading aloud in programs. Her guidance and work was a huge help to our program and understanding of literacy in out of school time settings."
— Christina Hanger, CEO Dallas Afterschool
