Jennifer Roig, M.Ed.Structured Literacy/Dyslexia Specialist

Provider Bio

As a leader and visionary with more than 30 years of experience in the field of Special Education, literacy, and currently a doctoral student at the University of Florida (with an area of concentration on dyslexia) Mrs. Jennifer Roig founded The Roig Academy K- 8 School in 2000 to serve children with language-based learning disabilities. These children experienced difficulty learning in a traditional classroom environment yet displayed a variety of strengths. Mrs. Roig is committed to research/science-based learning and a strong belief in the power of neuroplasticity. She strives to remain at the cutting edge of her field and continually seeks ongoing education and training that guides her administrative and curricular decisions.
The Roig Academy while implementing cutting-edge research and practice, including Structured Literacy (Orton-Gillingham Approach), ensures that all academic programs challenge students using culturally responsive teaching practices in order to push their intellectual boundaries, awaken curiosity about learning and implement critical thinking skills thus, building upon her students’ dyslexic advantages. Mrs. Roig continues to fulfill her school’s vision by obtaining designation as an International Baccalaureate School (IB PYP)- one of the few IB designated schools for students with dyslexia. She and her team nurture and develop curious young learners as active participants in a lifelong journey of learning in an inquiry-based learning environment.
Mrs. Roig is a Florida Certified K-12 Special Education Teacher. She is a member of the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators, is an International Dyslexia Association (IDA) Certified Structured Literacy Dyslexia Specialist, and an IB PYP Coordinator. Her other professional memberships include the American Psychological Association (APA) and the Council for Exceptional Students (CEC).
