Dr. Schreuder is a Dutch educated Pediatrician and Neonatologist, and did her PhD in the area of Epidemiology.
Her study and work have brought her to Hospitals and Research Centers in South Africa, The Netherlands, Oxford University in the UK and the University of Texas in Houston.
She is a consultant for various schools and helps private clients who suffer from dyscalculia, the math learning disability. She is a regular speaker at Professional Development days for teachers or for other interested groups. She volunteered at Neuhaus and a fMRI study at UT and was trained as a tutor at UT. The tutoring experience brought back fond memories of her first student job as a Math tutor.
Her Motto is: Math is my passion, Awareness, Communication, Research and Re-mediation of Dyscalculia is my mission.
Houston Math is her initiative to expand her services, just in the summer, to children not necessarily with dyscalculia but with various levels of Math Capabilities to ensure they are ready for a new school-year and get a boost after the so-called “Summer Slump” and experience that MATH can actually be FUN.
