Mona Iyer
Mona Iyer
Mohana Iyer (known to friends as “Mona”) has been in the field of education, focusing on teaching young children for over twenty-five years. She got her American Montessori Society (AMS) certification in Montessori training from Dallas, Texas and taught at the New Beginnings Montessori in Plano, Texas. Ms. Iyer moved to Maryland in 1996 where she has been a teacher at the Manor Montessori School in Potomac, Maryland. As a teacher, Ms. Iyer observed that some children could read easily, and others had difficulty reading even after repeated teaching. To gain more insight into this, she joined the Atlantic Seaboard Dyslexia Education Center (ASDEC) in Rockville, Maryland in 2006. Currently she is a Certified Academic Language Therapist (CALT), Clinical Supervisor, and a Certified Dyslexia Therapist (CDT), and actively conducts Academic Language Therapy sessions from her home office in Maryland. Ms. Iyer’s research focuses on the importance of phonemic awareness and letter recognition in the acquisition of literacy development. With her Montessori background, she started to teach children through a combination of both Montessori and the Multisensory Structured Language Education techniques and found that children in her classroom were able to read by the time they left the kindergarten program.
