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. **FOR THOSE INTERESTED IN ONGOING LITERACY/NUMERACY SUPPORT, PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE CURRENTLY FULLY BOOKED**

 

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.
