Presenter Bio

I am a literacy and inclusion specialist focusing on empowering all learners, embracing neurodiversity and SEND. I provide face to face or online training, consultancy, information and support for professionals and families from all sectors. I am passionate about making a positive difference to the lives, attitudes and outcomes of those neurodiverse learners who may struggle to learn.

I have over 25 years’ knowledge and experience within special and mainstream education up to Headteacher level, as well as a solid research background rooted within the psychology of learning, that includes a master’s and PhD in Special Education.

I have recently published a book on ‘Teaching Reading to All Learners’ and write regular articles for several key industry publications.

Throughout my career the one constant has been my belief in people and that everyone can succeed in the right environment, with the right support and equal access to opportunities. I aim to bridge the gap between theory and learning, to create a culture where high expectations thrive, improving outcomes for all. Through the creation of inspirational learning opportunities, raising expectations, and removing barriers for all learners.
