Jeanne JeupMrs. Jeanne Jeup is the Co-Founder and Supervisor of Instruction at the Institute for Multi-Sensory Education (IMSE). Mrs. Jeup, along with Bronwyn Hain, founded the Institute in 1995 using a modified and expanded Orton-Gillingham approach to teaching reading. Their vision was to be able to reach out to general education teachers, grades K-3, to give them a tool to teach reading with a direct, multi-sensory approach, with an ultimate goal to decrease the number of referrals to special education. The approach is also widely used by intervention specialists, reading coaches, parents, ELL tutors, and other educators who desire an effective tool to teach individuals how to read.
