Welcome to Dyslexia and Literacy Support

If you have difficulties reading, writing or sequencing your thoughts, I would understand if you are also feeling frustrated or anxious. Perhaps you are just fed up by the amount of extra effort reading and writing can take.

This may be because you have been encouraged to use standard learning techniques. These methods suit 85% of the population but may not match your particular learning style or thought processes.

Most people know that dyslexia involves difficulties with reading, writing and staying focussed. The characteristics of curiosity, creativity and a highly visual way of thinking are less well known. These can be used to to build strategies to overcome the difficulties.

All support and training programmes are done on a one-to-one basis to ensure that they meet your personal goals. The first step is a free telephone consultation so please get in touch to explore how these are used in support programmes for adults, students or children. These can be a Davis programme, based on the methods detailed in The Gift of Dyslexia, or a study skills programme.

I also regularly run the six-part support programme for parents, Why Tyrannosaurus But Not If?
Please get in touch if you would like further information.
