Heading_Team_black 3.png

At The Dyslexia Hub we do things a little differently. As advocates of inclusion and diversity, we appreciate that one size does not fit all. This applies equally to everyone - even the members of our team! So whilst we have come together as professionals to collaborate, share our knowledge & expertise, and fight for a common cause, we all still operate as private practitioners.  


Listed below everyone's profile is a brief description of the services that they offer, their availability and their contact details.


Start by getting in touch with the member of our team who best meets your current needs.


For those who are unsure what it is that they need (we've all been there!), we recommend that you book an initial parent support session with Hub Director, Amanda, to devise a plan of attack.

She then became a qualified MSL therapist (Orton-Gillingham) through IMSLE. In 2019, she completed Ron Yoshimoto’s Advanced Morphology course and attended the Language, Literacy and Learning Conference hosted by DSF in WA.


Lisa has a strong grasp of the social and emotional consequences of dyslexia. She is inspired the research of Marianne Wolf and believes in the importance of empowering neuro-diverse learners.
