I am an experienced dyslexia and dyscalculia Teacher and Assessor. My background is in Primary Teaching and for several years I taught the whole primary age range. I retrained as a dyslexia specialist in 2010 and following that later as a dyscalculia specialist- initially to be able to further support individuals within my classroom and also my own children.
In 2012 I founded the Dyslexia Centre North West, where we offer support, specialist assessments and tuition across all age ranges. We work with ESENDI which is our school based and FE/HE service and team of Specialist Teachers, Educational Psychologists, Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Sensory Specialists and Pupil counsellors.

Testimonial from a client
Copy and pasted from a recent testimonial provided from a parent for my website. we are so grateful to have found Katie. At first my daughter was a little apprehensive about attending for her dyscalculia assessment but Katie quickly and reassuringly made her feel at ease. She actually enjoyed some of the testing process. Katie was caring and her expertise and professionalism was amazing. Thank you Katie
