Katie Nelson

Katie is the founder of The Dyslexia Centre North West and is an experienced dyscalculia teacher and assessor.

Katie says,

‘I am an experienced dyslexia and dyscalculia Teacher and Assessor. My background is in Primary Teaching and for several years I taught the whole primary age range. I retrained as a dyslexia specialist in 2010 and following that later as a dyscalculia specialist- initially to be able to further support individuals within my classroom and also my own children.

I have recently developed a key interest in assessing for dyscalculia using a newly developed secure on-line classroom in order to support as many individuals as possible with the identification and support of maths difficulties.

In 2012 I founded the Dyslexia Centre North West, where we offer support, specialist assessments and tuition across all age ranges. We work with ESENDI which is our school based and FE/HE service and team of Specialist Teachers, Educational Psychologists, Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Sensory Specialists and Pupil counsellors.

Our service also offers online learning and accredited dyslexia and dyscalculia courses for professionals at dyslexia-academy.co.uk’
