An experienced specialist dyslexia teacher and assessor, Jo Souter is passionate about helping children to unlock their potential. As a teacher and as a mum of 2, Jo understands that every child is different and that a ‘one size fits all’ approach doesn’t work. As a result her teaching is personalised to each student and draws on their strengths.
Covering dyslexia assessment and dyslexia tutoring in Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Greater London, Jo is also available online to cover all of the UK.
With over 15 years teaching experience, Jo channels her passion to help your child achieve their potential. Whether they have been diagnosed with dyslexia or find reading and spelling challenging. Working with families and schools, a tailored plan is created specifically for your child.
Dyslexia is a lifelong condition which often runs in families and it’s estimated that 1 in 10 people have dyslexia. It can range from mild to severe and can co-occur with other learning differences. Each person is unique as is their pattern of strengths and difficulties, therefore each person’s experience of dyslexia is different.
Dyslexia can only be formally identified with a full diagnostic assessment. The assessments keep your child at the heart of the process and as a result identify both strengths and areas of difficulty. Find out more details about a JLS Education dyslexia assessment.
A dyslexia assessment is more than just a diagnosis:
Your child is unique, as is the way that they learn. Specialist dyslexia tuition will provide the right targeted support for your child in addition to support and guidance for you.
Dyslexia is complex and affects each child differently so a flexible approach to tuition is needed. While younger children may benefit from a multisensory, cumulative approach, older children may need help with study skills and essay planning. Jo’s experience as a specialist teacher allows her to adapt lessons to address any difficulties as they come to light.
