Timberly Williams

Founder and CEO


Literacy Innovations, LLC was founded by Ebony T. Donley, a public school teacher with 15 years experience. While working with the middle grades, Ms. Donley realized that many learners required explicit, direct instruction in basic literacy and math skills. She felt empowered and inspired to create a program that would improve all aspects of reading and math development for the learners. The goal of Literacy Innovations is to provide the learners with a solid foundation while on their way to academic excellence. Ms. Donley earned a Bachelor's degree in Education from Baldwin Wallace College in 2000 and a Master's degree in Education from Cleveland State University in 2005. Ms. Donley currently holds valid Ohio teaching licenses in Special Education K-12, Elementary 1-8 and a Reading Endorsement K-12.

Different Students 
Require Different
Approaches to Learning

Research shows that people learn in many different ways. For this reason, a multi-modality approach will be used when working with the learners. The learners will practice skills using visual, auditory, and tactile methods. Literacy Innovations, LLC is committed to enhancing essential skills by using materials and mediums that best assist the learner. Literacy Innovations, LLC focuses on one-on-one tutoring, so the learner will achieve success in minimal time and be motivated to learn.  

Dyslexia Training

The Dyslexia Support Laws require all kindergarten through third grade teachers and special education teachers to K-12 to complete professional development on identifying characteristics of dyslexia. I have successfully passed the test.

Customized ​Learning 

Literacy Innovations, LLC is committed to improving reading skills in learners  K-6 in all subject area. Reading skills are necessary to be successful in all subject areas. For this reason, literacy is the focus of the company. Each learner will be given an assessment to generate data in order to determine his/her skills in phonemic awareness, phonics, word recognition, vocabulary in context, oral reading comprehension, silent reading comprehension listening comprehension and critical thinking. After the assessment, a program will be tailored to the learner to meet his/her needs based on the results. The goal is to gain maximum results in minimal time.

The learner will also complete a learning style inventory so that the tutoring can be individualized based on the learner's learning style, as well as, strengths and weaknesses. 

In The News

Ohio's Dyslexia Screening

This year districts and schools must administer "tier one dyslexia screenings" for all students in grades K-3. Students in grades 4-6 may be given the screening upon request of the parent or guardian or a student's teacher with the permission of a parent or guardian. If a student is identified as "at-risk" the district is required to take additional measures to support the student in reading and writing.

How Will You Know if Your Child is on Track?

The school will assess your child to find out his/her reading level. If your child is not on track, the school will give your child a reading plan that should help the child improve his/her reading. It is important for you to read the information provided by the school about your child's reading performance in grades K-3. Do not be alarmed if your child is on a RIMP. This plan will get them additional support in the area of reading.

How Can I Help?

You can help by reading to your child daily and making sure that he/she reads for at least 30 minutes each day outside of school. You can also help by making sure that your child has mastered the high frequency words. High frequency words are the foundation of oral and written communication. These words must be memorized because many of them cannot be sounded out phonetically. Also be sure to have your learner pay attention to text features (graphs, diagrams, charts, maps, timelines, table of content) when reading as these features assist with comprehension. Last but not least, have your learners use text evidence to answer questions.
