Training

I specialise in supporting schools to help all their learners overcome literacy difficulties, and especially teaching learners with dyslexia and with other SpLDs.

I offer training for whole staff teams, targeted groups such as TAs and LSAs, or individual consultancies. I can devise bespoke training for your individual needs and personnel.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me for a no obligations discussion of your training requirements.

Best wishes,

Mark Sherin

One of the main benefits she gained by working with the team at the Dyslexia centre is confidence and understanding. After her assessment and a few sessions her confidence soared: she realised that she was clever, capable and had a different way of learning. 


She began working with the centre regularly from year 4 and quickly learned strategies for learning.  She enjoyed using the various computer packages, which helped to re-enforce her sessions, and went back to the beginning with phonics and spellings that were based on strategies rather than lists of words.   Most of all she gained a very positive, can-do attitude and a belief that nothing can hold her back.
