Qualified Dyslexia Tutors You Can Trust

Are you looking for a friendly and fully qualified dyslexia tutor and assessor based in Northern Ireland? Look no further than Forge Dyslexia Support Services. Get to know a bit more about us. 

My name is Heather Rowan. I am a graduate of Queen's University, Belfast (B.A. Hons.) and my working passion is to give professional support to those who are hampered by dyslexia and the associated difficulties in reading, writing and spoken communication. 


Having gained experience and initial qualifications in teaching literacy and essential skills to adults, I quickly became aware that the need of those who have dyslexia is much more pronounced. 


After further extensive training to teach those with Specific Learning Difficulties, I was equipped to create bespoke learning programmes to meet the varied needs of dyslexic learners of all ages. Two years later I also became qualified in the assessment of dyslexia and am now able to produce Full Diagnostic Assessment Reports. I founded Forge Dyslexia Support Services in Newtownards in 2010 and my aim is to provide professional dyslexic support to people of all ages. So, if you have any questions, contact me today.
