What I do
When carrying out an assessment it is important to consider the individual’s story. The assessment is only the start of the journey so I have developed my services to offer parents support after diagnosis, such as attending school meetings with them.
I can provide tutoring within the school environment or at my home. I work with dyslexic learners of all ages, which gives me a unique insight into the development of dyslexia.
Research shows that teachers actively want more information to enable them to meet the needs of children with SEND, which includes dyslexia. I aim to provide the science behind teaching approaches.
