Meet the Volunteers
Dyslexia Cornwall would not exist without volunteers. Our volunteers bring a wealth of skills that allows us to do more for people with dyslexia and their families.
The volunteers are a vital link in raising awareness of our work and helps us to develop strong links with communities across the county.
Over the next few weeks we will be adding profiles of our volunteers including information on the fantastic work they are doing…
I have been volunteering for the Dyslexia Cornwall for many years. I specialise in providing advice and guidance to parents, screenings for children and reading and spelling strategies for individuals or groups.
I have a great depth of knowledge of dyslexia and dyspraxia developed through my specialist training, including a Bachelor and Master’s degree in Education. I have also attained OCR Level 5 and Level 7 in Teaching and Assessing Learners with Dyslexia/Specific Learning Difficulties.
I live in Falmouth and can see clients at the centre or locally if preferred.
I moved to Cornwall in 2013 after retiring from primary school teaching in Buckinghamshire. I love it!
I started volunteering with Dyslexia Cornwall in 2015 and mainly help individuals to improve their reading, writing and spelling.
I can help with other things too, such as form filling, study skills and preparing for interviews.
I see clients at the centre in Truro.
