Alena Houghton, M.A.      Assessment Technician

Alena is the owner of Southern Oregon EmpowerED, an educational therapy and consulting private practice based in Grants Pass, Oregon. I work with struggling K-12 students with learning differences. These learners may have diagnosed or undiagnosed ADHD and executive issues, dyscalculia (math disability), dyslexia, dysgraphia, and/or processing disorders. My goal is to unlock my students’ potentials by tapping into their strengths and creating individualized learning plans that suit them best.

I have been in the field of education for 10 years and first found my passion for teaching while working as a science educator at ScienceWorks Hands-On Museum in Ashland, Oregon. Wanting to build more meaningful, long-lasting relationships with my students, I went on to receive my Masters in Teaching in Science Education at Boston University.

Teaching science in the public schools quickly alerted me to the reality that many of my students, those with learning differences, rarely had the tools they needed to be successful. I switched course and earned my special education endorsement. After working in public school special education for 4 years, I became a certified member of the Association of Educational Therapists (AET). I strongly value the solely 1-on-1 instruction I am able to provide in this work. I seek professional development opportunities through organizations including AET, the International Dyslexia Association, and others.

Shanley has been in the field of education for the past 29 years. She is currently a
special educator who works in the public school system, participating on a district
evaluation team. Shanley works closely with students and their families, while
collaborating with a variety of professionals to assist in the evaluation of students with
educational disabilities.

Shanley began her early career working in the private sector with preschool-aged children, before earning her Special Education teaching endorsement. Since this time, Shanley has worked directly with a variety of exceptional learners, ranging from kindergarten-aged through early adulthood students. Shanley completed the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Specialist Program, adding the ASD Specialist designation to her Oregon teaching license in 2015.

Shanley is passionate about working with children and their families. It is her hope that information gained through the evaluation experience will help foster an understanding of the child’s strengths and preferences, while encouraging self-advocacy related to the child’s individual learning needs.
