Breaking through barriers


All teachers and teachers of SEND are breaking through barriers for all students. When we stop and think about those students that have difficulties like dyslexia all we truly breaking through barriers.

As a severely dyslexic adult I was told in year eight that I’d never amount to anything because I couldn’t read or write. I’m sitting here today dictating a blog for one of my five companies! Yes, I have challenges everyday, but I understand my dyslexia which allows me to support myself seek support when I need it and use technology to breakthrough barriers.

I am passionate about understanding and giving teachers tools to support learners and engage with colleagues to grow their knowledge within our environments so that we can truly empower those that need it and breakthrough barriers when it comes to our education system.
