Course Created by Nicola Chippendale Dyslexia-Academy Specialist Teacher
Nicola has been teaching 10 years. Her specialism is Primary Teacher Training with QTS and Children’s Development and Learning.
Nicola has worked across Lancashire in Key Stage One and Two and has been part of a Primary through-to Secondary school. She became a SENCO Assistant 6 years ago then completed the National SENCO Award to become a SENCO three years ago.
Nicola has also worked in a Special School supporting children with ASC and ADHD. Nicola is an SPLD (Dyslexia) Teacher and will soon finalise this training to become an AMBDA accredited Assessor. She came cross the excellent SNIP programme devised by highly experienced dyslexia tutors Carol and Phil Smart last year whilst working in a school. She was so incredibly impressed that this resource was readily available, that she felt strongly about preparing some introductory training on the SNIP programme and it's delivery for Parents, Teachers, SENDCos and Teaching assistants- so that they ensure that every child is able to demonstrate their true potential.
Nicola is passionate about supporting children with dyslexia and all specific learning difficulties to enable them to grow into secure and capable individuals. All of our children deserve the best education they can get, even if this means following new avenues. Nicola feels strongly that a good education will support our next generation to become valuable members in the community, and she strives to support pupils to do this the best way she can.
