The Nuts & Bolts of Private Practice
Susan Barton recently converted one of her most in-demand all-day workshops, the Nuts & Bolts of Private Practice, into 3 shorter on-line sessions.
Now any Barton tutor, certified or not, can watch these sessions for a small fee, over the internet 24/7.
The three sessions are:
- Setting up a private practice, the nitty gritty – 1 hour
- What to charge and how to market effectively – 2 hours
- Set parent expectations with a tutoring agreement and a road map – 2 hours

Susan Barton, the founder of Bright Solutions for Dyslexia, gives presentations on dyslexia all across the country. But she cannot keep up with the demand.
So she contacted all of the graduates of her summer seminars. Many, who were already giving presentations at a local or state level, agreed to become part of a Speakers Bureau on dyslexia. Speakers are now available in 37 states and five countries.
If your organization, school, or conference would like a speaker on dyslexia, whether it is for a short presentation at a service club meeting or a parent support group, a three-hour in-depth workshop, or an all-day inservice training, click here and fill out the form.
Susan Barton will match your request with the most appropriate speaker in your area.
