Mrs. Williams has a private practice in Huntsville

where she provides a variety of diagnostic and

intervention services to area students including:

     - dyslexia assessment

     - dyslexia remediation

     - speech therapy

     - language intervention


Mrs. Williams has more than 36 years of diagnostic experience in both the public school and private settings. In addition to testing privately, Mrs. Williams currently provides dyslexia testing at:

      Greengate School in Huntsville

      - Lindsay Lane Christian Academy in Athens

      - The Dyslexia Center of the Shoals in Muscle Shoals


A firm believer in early identification and remediation of “at-risk” students, Mrs. Williams is one of a limited number of diagnosticians in the state of Alabama that assesses the kindergarten and first-grade population.

Paula Williams received her B.S. in Speech/Language Pathology in 1978 from Auburn University at Montgomery and her M.A. in 1980 from the University of Alabama. She worked with the Madison County School System for 25 years as a Speech/Language Pathologist.

While working at Lynn Fanning Elementary School, she was instrumental in establishing and coordinating Orton-Gillingham based literacy intervention for 12 dyslexic/learning disabled students. She was able to observe firsthand the powerful impact multisensory reading intervention had in helping learning-impaired students overcome their reading and spelling difficulties.

Mrs. Williams is an active member of the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association, where she was awarded the Certificate of Clinical Competence in 1982. She is both nationally and state certified as a Speech/Language Pathologist and was recently recognized for her outstanding commitment to post-graduate continuing education by receiving the PACE award from ASHA.  

Mrs. Williams is also a member of the International Dyslexia Association and a founding member of the Alabama Branch of I.D.A. where she served three terms on their Board of Directors. In addition to her training in speech and language, Mrs. Williams has completed over 125 hours of post-graduate training in the Orton-Gillingham method and has received specialized training in numerous intervention programs including:


     - Handwriting Without Tears

     - Language!

     - Wilson Language

     - Project Read​
