Mary Thompson

Dyslexia Specialist

Mary joined Word First in 2015 working as a Speech and Language therapist in primary mainstream schools. She has always found the link between language and literacy development fascinating and intertwined. In 2017, Mary qualified with a Level 7 Post Graduate Certificate in dyslexia, which qualified her to undertake dyslexia assessments, tuition and training.

Mary currently works with pupils aged 4-16 years within primary and secondary schools using her knowledge and skills about language and literacy to support students’ progress. Mary’s aim is to deliver fun, multi-sensory targeted lessons which focus on utilising the child’s strengths to enable them to realise their potential.
