Specialist Assessment, Teaching and Learning aimed at children 4 years old to adult
Jill spent many years as a Class Teacher and Special Needs Teacher in primary and secondary education, working with pupils and students with Moderate to Severe learning difficulties.
She then trained as a Specialist Teacher in Dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties including Autism and ADHD.
Jill has worked for an education authority for the past 10 years in this role as well as being a Senior Manager. She writes workshops and training which she delivers to teachers and SENCOs and is an advisor to SENCOs and class teachers working in schools.
She has developed various teaching programmes and courses, which have been well received in schools.
Jill now wants to be able to pass this knowledge on to parents, adults and children in order to help them reach their full potential and give them strategies to overcome their difficulties.
She does not provide traditional tutoring; rather she offers a Specialist Service where teaching and learning is delivered to an outstanding level. Jill will unpick the difficulty and put a programme in place that will be successful.
After a free initial half hour consultation, her range of services include:
Cognitive Assessment: this tests overall cognitive ability.
Literacy Cognitive Assessment: this tests overall ability and performance tests.
Performance Assessment: testing reading accuracy, reading speed, processing speed, reading comprehension, writing, spelling, high frequency word knowledge, phonic knowledge.
Dyslexia Screening Test: this gives an indicator of the likelihood of having dyslexia. It is not a diagnosis as only Educational Psychologists can diagnose dyslexia but is a very good indicator which parents can use to gain a full diagnosis.
Memory tests: memory underpins most of what we learn – tests include auditory memory, working memory, visual memory, visual sequential memory and processing speed.
Reading comprehension tests SATs: these give an indication of what the pupil is having difficulty with.
Teaching sessions for aged 4 to adult: programmes are designed to specifically meet individual needs. Jill teaches using a multisensory approach and pupils learn through having fun.
Teacher training provided at a bespoke cost: teachers who would like strategies to help pupils who are having difficulties can have a private or group consultation.
