Dyslexia is the most common learning difficulty, affecting 3–7 % of the population while up to 20% may have some degree of symptoms. The underlying mechanisms are problems within the brain’s language processing and so different methods of teaching may be appropriate.
I am committed to supporting the learner with dyslexia to reach their full potential and to find methods that work best to enable the learner to understand the advantages and successes that can be presented by dyslexia.

Dyslexia Support Courses
A parent of a child with dyslexia is keen to unlock the inner potential of the child. Often after a diagnosis the parent is unsure where to turn and how to give the child the extra support which is required for them to progress.
The seminar for parents of children with dyslexia will equip the parent with a better knowledge of what dyslexia is and its effects on learning.
Kathleen Sweeney is a recognised Resource and Learning support teacher, she has trained teachers and principals in schools across Ireland since 2007 and has a vast amount of experience supporting parents and their child with dyslexia.
Kathleen has a professional and personal understanding of dyslexia and the learning difficulties faced by children with dyslexia as well as the support required by parents.
Dyslexia is a different brain organisation that needs different coaching methods. It is never the fault of the child, but rather the responsibility of us who teach to find methods that work for that child.

Every child has a different learning style and pace. Each child is unique, not only capable of learning but also capable of succeeding.
Robert John Meehan
If a child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn.
