Dorothy grew up surrounded by books and a love for learning. As a result, she chose to home school her own children so she could participate more actively in their learning. After the tragic death of her youngest daughter, her 3 older children developed trauma related learning issues including being diagnosed with significant dyslexia, dyscalculia & dysgraphia. Her quest for helping them, led her to the Barton Program. She is passionate about helping people of all ages learn in the way God created them, realizing that there is not a one size fits all answer when it comes to learning.
