About Clarity

Hi, I’m Debbie, founder of Clarity Dyslexia Consultancy.

After a total of 13 years of teaching experience, including 10 years of assessing and teaching children and adults for special educational needs, I am delighted to have opened Clarity Dyslexia Consultancy in September 2014. This was born out of my passion to see every child enjoying well-being and achieving their full potential in education.

I gained my scientific knowledge through my degree in Biomedical Science and initially developed an interest for teaching whilst helping my first daughter learn to read in her pre-school years. My interest and talent in teaching quickly grew as I gained my Qualified Teacher Status in 2002.

It was soon after this that things began to change, as I started to realise that my daughter wasn’t learning to read and write like the other children. After lots of research about how best to help her, I decided to become a Dyslexia Specialist Teacher. It seemed that the help she needed wasn’t available in her mainstream Primary school.

I completed my Post Graduate Diploma in Dyslexia and Literacy with Dyslexia Action and then widened my Special Needs experience whilst working as the SENCo (Special Educational Needs Coordinator) in a local Independent School. Since then, I have enjoyed three years as Principal of the Chelmsford Dyslexia Action Centre and developing the team of Specialist Teachers there.
