Margaret, as a doctor of psychology, has researched many aspects of literacy acquisition for years. Research by Georgetown University has shown through MRI scanning that in order to read well, children need to build a visual dictionary of words. As a self-diagnosed dyslexic, Margaret is passionate about the positive effects of adult supported reading and the quick start benefits of using visual strategies to supplement phonics taught in schools. She has three adult children whom she taught to read before school. The benefits of a supportive family cannot be stressed enough and Margaret understands that some parents are unable to help their families. Margaret’s books are hugely beneficial to children with SEN and EAL. Using amusing illustrated paired-reading stories, safe cuddly toys and website free games, Margaret is convinced she can motivate all children to read for pleasure. Margaret loves detective stories, riding on roller coasters and sunshine.
