My journey with Dyslexia began in 2015 when my 8-year-old daughter, Poppy was reading at a Prep level, despite specialist help at school. Her self-esteem plummeted as she watched her peers take off with reading while she lagged behind.
She is an incredibly switched on and smart kid. It just didn’t make sense that she couldn’t grasp the process of reading. After being identified as Dyslexic, she received MSL support with explicit & direct instruction for reading. Poppy is now in high school and reading at grade level.
I am here to help you understand what Dyslexia means for your child and to work with you to help them thrive.
I am a certified Multisensory Language Therapist trained in the Orton-Gillingham method by the Institute for Multisensory Structured Language Education.
I am an accredited member of the Australian Dyslexia Association. My training aligns with international guidelines for effective practices for literacy teaching.
Dyslexic kids can thrive at school and at home with the right supports. Reading and spelling difficulties are a small part of a Dyslexic person. Dyslexia is a gift. A different way of thinking. It is no coincidence that many of the innovations that we take for granted today were invented by a Dyslexic person.
I have a range of services available for both kids and their parents. When parents understand Dyslexia and have the tools they need to ensure reading and writing instruction needs are met, the focus can shift to the individual strengths of their child. Once, this occurs, kids thrive and can meet their human potential.
Let me know if you have any questions.
