Sue’s professional training began experientially at school, and at the age of 18, she remembers promising herself that she would never read another book as long as she lived. It was a solemn heartfelt promise that lasted many years. She worked as a secretary before changing direction to train as an integrative health therapist.
Her son’s learning challenges were obvious by the age of 8; but she didn’t discover her own dyslexia until she trained as a Davis Dyslexia Correction® Facilitator with Ronald D. Davis in the UK; nearer to 48 years old. She emigrated to Canada in 1998, and is one of over 400 Facilitators worldwide. For the past twenty years, Sue has felt privileged to be working with dyslexic children and adults, sharing in their “aha” moments, and watching them overcome their challenges. She is totally dedicated to this approach, knowing it addresses the cause of the challenges. Sue has delivered numerous information sessions, given Professional Development Day presentations, and appeared on Breakfast TV and CKN Radio.
In 2002 she founded a non-profit society to improve the understanding of dyslexia via a significant outreach program, to fund bursaries for Davis correction programs, to prevent the challenges from arising, and to sustain a community of like-minded individuals. She is inspired by the realization that our children are here to restore balance and create a new paradigm in education.
Sue loves to speak to groups of parents, teachers, educators, and of course dyslexics, sharing her knowledge of the perceptual gift that underlies their talents and their challenges. She is truly thankful for to all her students, past and future for the learning experience that they share together.
