Meet Our Advisory Board

Robert Newby

I joined LDA of Wisconsin because I want to support state-level advocacy for learning support services in the public schools.

I have experience as a pediatric neuropsychologist in working with children who have learning problems

My dream is to see all children taught in the ways they learn best.

Molly Shiffler

My role on the LDA of Wisconsin board is to act as a professional advisor in collaboration with other board members on sharing information and promoting proficient literacy for  students with families and educators.

Before joining, I spent decades initiating and building rural and urban literacy centers and community coalitions serving and supporting individuals with learning disabilities, their families and preservice and inservice educators at K-12 and university levels

My dream is that someday all children will grow into joyful lifetime readers; LDA Wisconsin plays a critical role in that future.
