Working holistically and with compassion, my aim is to bring back joy and confidence to the learning and school experience.
Dyslexia, social communication challenges, autism, attentional issues, and behavioural needs are particularly areas of passion and specialism. However, not all the youngsters I see have been previously assessed. Often there is a lack of clarity about why the young person is unhappy or underachieving at school, and what might help.
Alongside bringing the young person’s strengths to the fore, I sensitively identify where challenges exist, and how to address them. Where required, I can draw on the expertise of other specialists and we work together in a multi-disciplinary way to support the child and their family.
In tandem, I continue to write about education and parenting matters in the media, using my platform to enable a better understanding of how to meet young people's needs. I am also the author of ‘How to Create a Parent-Friendly School'.
