My background is in Education: I taught for 10 years in a state sector primary school where I was head of a large infant department. After completing a Master’s degree in Education and having my three children, I also qualified to provide learning support for children with specific learning difficulties (SpLD).
Crucially, I have direct personal experience of the importance of choosing the right school for a child with additional needs. My elder son is dyslexic and my second son has ADHD, ODD and dyslexia. Between them they have attended a number of different schools, seen a range of professionals and had numerous assessments.
