The piece below has been published in the ADSHE Conference Booklet:
This year the Association of Specialists in HE (ADSHE) is marking the recent loss of Sylvia Moody with an award in her memory. This award will recognise an individual or group of people who have made a significant and valued contribution to the sharing of resources and materials for the benefit of the profession.
The Sylvia Moody Award acknowledges Sylvia as an advocate for students with SpLD. She wrote a great deal of material, much of which was freely accessible from her website, and produced a trilogy of books providing valuable guidance for those in secondary education, college and the workplace
Sylvia also chaired the ‘Workplace Training Group’ whose members presented findings and perspectives of dyslexia in the workplace. The many people who benefited from her very great knowledge, insight and expertise found her books, articles and website resources extremely useful, and she was always so generous about sharing her ideas and resources.
"The Sylvia Moody Award was presented this year by the Association of Specialists in HE (ADSHE) at their Annual Conference in Sylvia's Memory. The very well-deserved winner was ADSHE member Jamie Crabb.
Jamie truly epitomises the wonderful attributes that Sylvia brought to the professional world that ADSHE represents and the principles that she held so strongly. I am very pleased to also let you know that Jamie has been working on ensuring that the wealth of resources on Sylvia’s website can continue to be available for everyone to access. Currently it is possible to access the resources on the following link: http://www.sylviamoody.com/dyslexia.html.
Many congratulations to Jamie, who I feel would have been the ADSHE member who Sylvia would have most liked to receive the award dedicated to her memory." Pauline Sumner
