The founders of the company have a business background but in 2000 they became qualified teachers. They specialised in working with students with learning difficulties and over the next 10 years developed a full range of skills that were successful. These include British Sign Language, Braille, Note taking, use of computers and current software, Language Modification and Mentoring.
This experience gave them an insight into the daily issues students with learning difficulties face and throughout that time they developed support strategies that ensured the students were able to access the curriculum and fulfil their own potential.
In 2003 their work led them to specialise in Dyslexia and the acquisition of language and the difficulties some people face accessing language. Their interest in this topic and their subsequent research and studies culminated in gaining a post graduate qualification in Education (Difficulties in Literacy development) – dyslexia.
The following year they became members of The Professional Association of Teachers of Students with Specific Learning Difficulties (PATOSS) and Hold Associated Practising Certificates.
