Vicky Ringer is a Specialist Dyslexia Teacher and an Assessor of children with Specific Learning Difficulties. She has a Post Graduate Diploma in Specific Learning Difficulties. She is a member of the British Dyslexia Assocation and holds a practising certificate.
Vicky has 12 years experience of teaching both mainstream and special educational needs. She decided to specialise in dyslexia after teaching lots of children within the mainstream classroom who displayed good understanding verbally but struggled to write down their ideas, found it difficult to remember ideas and were often disorganised. She saw how having a diagnosis of dyslexia and being taught in a dyslexia friendly way, could raise a child’s self-esteem and self-belief that they can achieve in the world. Vicky understands how difficult school can be for dyslexic students and is committed to helping them realise their potential through having a dyslexia assessment and through recommending appropriate strategies of intervention. She understands the concern and frustration parents often feel if their child is underachieving and works carefully to assess and recognise the child’s difficulties.
