Hello everyone

My name is Patricia Taylor, and I am a Specialist (Dyslexia) Teacher & Art Therapist with over 20 years’ experience of helping people to learn. My mission is to re- engage children with literacy difficulties or dyslexia, with the excitement of learning rather than the fear of failure.

My Journey

Over the last 20 years, I have been on a journey to understand how children learn. Seeing the emotional distress of children’s learning differences as a classroom teacher compelled me to find out how I could help.

My Training 

I decided to invest in the futures of those children and myself. I undertook specialist training to become a SENCO and Art Therapist. This gave me the tools to support the learning differences, mental health, and emotional wellbeing of individuals and small groups. As a life-long learner, I am keen to stay up-to-date with key developments in dyslexia, literacy and SpLD.  I am always undertaking Continuous Professional Development (CPD) to inform my practice.

My Experience
Throughout my experiences teaching in both state and independent schools, I began to recognise a growing need to support children’s emotional well-being alongside their academic learning. This inspired and motivated me to set up the therapeutic classroom.
