Experience: Madeline is a speech-language pathologist and has been with Thinking Organized since 2021. She has worked with clients from kindergarten through college with a variety of needs. At the middle, high school, and college levels, Madeline has worked with students with executive functioning needs to better manage their time and stay on top of their academic responsibilities. Examples include setting up material organization systems in physical binders or online folders and creating work and study plans on a nightly basis to set realistic and manageable goals. From a language standpoint, Madeline has worked with young students on strengthening phonological awareness and thus introducing the reading and writing processes. She has worked with elementary through college students on written language organization by following all steps of the writing process (e.g., brainstorming, outlining, drafting, revising).
