Read a little bit about us...
I am a specialist teacher and assessor of learners with Specific Learning Difficulties recognised by the Professional Association of Teachers of Students with Specific Learning Difficulties (PATOSS) and the British Dyslexia Association.
I have gained experience working in primary, secondary and college environments and therefore, I am familiar with the demands placed upon children and young people, at different ages, in education.
Recently, I worked for 13 years at Richard Huish College (Taunton) as a Specific Learning Difficulty Co-ordinator; the key role was to complete individual assessments with students and to implement a support programme to meet their particular requirements. In addition I applied for exam concessions and completed diagnostic assessments of students with Dyslexia to apply for DSA (Disabled Students’ Allowance) in preparation for university.
While working in this capacity I realised the potential benefits of learning to touch type which are infinite. Consequently, we now teach children from age 8 upwards recommending early intervention especially if handwriting is a hindrance to self-development. For more information please refer to the section on Support Services (Touch typing).
