About your Mentor
I am a Dyslexia Specialist and Movement Therapist in developmental Reflex Integration. I started off as a Primary Teacher over 30 years ago. During this period I had three children and experienced many failings of the school system in not meeting their different learning styles especially as one one of my children has dyslexia.

What we'll do
We will begin with a free 20min phone chat so that you can share your concerns about your child and to help me choose the appropriate assessments. I will also ask you for some background information and send you a form to complete. The assessment lasts between 2 and 3 hours and covers a range of different tests and activities to see what your child is struggling with and how it impacts learning and behaviour.

Ongoing support and an option for further sessions will be available depending on the outcome of the assessment. My educational consultancy service rate is £55

I will carry out the assessment, explain the results including a written report and give you some useful strategies and recommendations. ASSESSMENTS FOR RETAINED REFLEXES Which underpin a range of difficulties. Reflexes are an innate series of movements all babies make which lay the foundations for posture, sensory processing, emotions and brain development. Sometimes, through trauma, illness or for other reasons, this process is disrupted and the reflexes are retained leading to a range of difficulties including: • Autistic spectrum disorder • Gross and fine motor delays • Developmental del...
