Between 2005 and 2013 I was Head of Abingdon House, London, a school for pupils aged 5-13 with SpLD. Previously (2001-2005) I was Principal of Fairley House Upper School, a school for pupils aged 11-14 with SpLD. Prior to this (1987-2001) I was Deputy Principal and a class teacher at Fairley House School, pupils aged 7-11.
I also worked in a primary, and a preparatory school in Bath. I co-wrote The Class Teacher in Dyslexia, a multidisciplinary approach. I have lectured on the ‘Integration of Remedial Techniques’, ‘Parents as Partners’ and ‘The Use of Laptop Word processors’. I am a CReSTeD consultant. I was a trustee of SITSE (Skola International Trust for Special Education) and spoke at various conferences on ‘A Chance for Success-What Students with SpLD Need!’ and on Sensory Integration in Beirut! I taught general subjects across the primary age range (6-11) and have an interest in the creative arts. I was secretary of ISA London West for 5 years. I am a Team Inspector for The Independent Schools Inspectorate.
