Clare Roberts

Clare Roberts, Dyslexia Specialist

I work as a Dyslexia Specialist at the Helen Arkell hub based in Oxford.

I started my career as a Key Stage 2 teacher but when I realised my daughter was dyslexic I retrained. I absolutely fell in love with the world of dyslexia and have been lucky enough to work with many, many inspiring pupils and dedicated teachers ever since.I work as a Dyslexia Specialist at the HElen Arkell hub based in Oxford.

At Helen Arkell I write Diagnostic Assessment Reports; tutor students on their Level 5 Diploma in ‘Teaching Learners with Dyslexia/Specific Learning Difficulties’ course and visit schools to support parents, teach pupils and train staff to help those pupils with literacy difficulties.

I also work for Oxford Brookes University as an associate lecturer on their Post Graduate Certificate in ‘Working with Children with Literacy Difficulties’ course. I help students to achieve their Associate Membership of the British Dyslexia Association (AMBDA).

Previously, I was on the Senior Management Team at a specialist school based in Abingdon, Oxfordshire. I led the team of specialist one-to-one teachers, ran the school’s outreach programme and was the lead assessor. I also taught one-to-one sessions and did some class teaching. This was always a joy as the pupils were an amazing group of children aged from six years to 12 years who were learning to find ways to reach their potential; as teachers we were lucky enough to watch them bloom year after year.
