I'm Sue Hall
A specialist teacher and learning coach dedicated to supporting mums of children with dyslexia help their child to shine.
With many years’ experience supporting children with dyslexia – as a teacher and a mum – I’ve seen and felt the emotional struggles often faced by parents.
Am I doing all I can? Is my child happy? Are they getting enough support to reach their full potential?
As mums we face many different highs and lows when bringing up our children. And if your child has a specific learning difficulty it may create a set of challenges that at first seem overwhelming.
This can leave you feeling:
Uncertain about how to best support your child’s individual needs.
Worried about how dyslexia will impact your child’s opportunities.
Confused about the services and additional support available.
Powerless or guilty because you’re not sure what to do.
But this doesn't need to continue...
I believe that with the right mindset, everything is possible
As a teacher you can give a pupil all the skills they need, but unless that child believes in themselves then their progress will be limited.
Through my role as Head of Learning Support in an independent school, I have come to see that this same principle is the case with adults too – that mindset plays a crucial role in feeling confident, happy and able.
It is for this reason that I decided to further expand my skills by training as a coach, and after combining these support strategies with my specialist teaching approach, I’ve seen both pupils and mums move confidently though a space of doubt and into one of ease.
Through my specialist consulting and coaching work, I will support you to:
Understand dyslexia and help your child to shine: The conversation around dyslexia is often based on barriers, but every child has a set of skills that offer value to the world. I will help you to understand the advantages that dyslexia can bring, and how you can nurture and support the development of your child’s passions and abilities.
Reduce stress and self-doubt: Supporting a child with learning difficulties can be stressful and emotional. Often mums feel isolated, guilty or sometimes even ashamed. I will support you to overcome the negative beliefs you’re holding deep within, and help you to establish loving practices to boost your confidence as a parent.
Access wider support: Let’s diminish the fear of being ‘Mumzilla’ so you can confidently and effectively work with the school to ensure your child receives the support they require and deserve.
Stay one step ahead: There are plenty of opportunities that offer your child a wonderful space to grow. I will help you take a proactive approach to your child’s personal and educational development, so you can feel confident and fully able to spark their inspiration.
About Sue Hall
Sue Hall is a specialist teacher and learning coach dedicated to supporting mums of children with dyslexia gain the confidence, skills and positive mindset that will help their child to shine.
Training as a teacher in the 1990s when dyslexia was rarely acknowledged, it was in the classroom that Sue truly recognised the diversity of teaching. After witnessing specific blocks that some of her students were facing, she started on her personal mission to create a individualised learning environment where every child could thrive.
But even after training as a specialist in dyslexia, Sue could see that removing the barriers to learning wouldn’t be enough. Yes, with the correct approach and additional support she could teach children the necessary skills, but without the right mindset and belief in themselves her students wouldn’t soar.
Understanding this link between mindset and performance led Sue to expand her skills through training in life coaching. Through gaining these additional coaching strategies, Sue has been able to offer personalised guidance to overwhelmed mothers who desire more clarity and confidence in how to best support their child.
Today, Sue continues working as a specialist teacher at an independent school, while also offering direct 1:1 support to mothers of children with dyslexia through her coaching and consultancy services. Throughout her work Sue has created a unique approach to helping mothers and children not only navigate the ‘unknown’ when it comes to dyslexia, but ensure both are offered a supportive space to build their self-esteem – a crucial link in the net of support that will help children with dyslexia not only survive school, but thrive throughout their educational journey and into a life they love.
