"‘Fortnightly literacy coaching with Kathryn has been so helpful this year and I’m grateful for how easy it was to access this support online. It was a big year with lots of change from face to face to online telepractice. My caseload consists of lots of literacy in primary school. We discussed everything from assessment tools to therapy, physical resources and online tools, individual client needs and school based intervention. It was particularly helpful to listen to Kathryn’s ideas and her practices as well as hear from other professionals in the group. Kathryn was receptive to questions and very personable. She was happy to be led by our ideas but also had her own information to share. Kathryn’s professional coaching has kept me up to date with best practices.’"

"‘Kathryn offers schools the unique knowledge and skill of being a dual qualified teacher and speech pathologist. This has provided her with the opportunity to be seconded by NESA as a curriculum writer for the new K-2 & 3-6 NSW English syllabus development. This recognition highlights the regard in which the professional community hold Kathryn. If you have the opportunity to engage her services, your school staff and students will thank you for her input into their development.’"

"Every course I have completed with Kathryn has been presented in a clear and easily understood manner. She presents a wealth of resources, thoroughly researched and mostly used herself with various students. Any questions are answered and explained. Kathryn’s experience in many workplace settings enables her to support you no matter where you work. I highly recommend any course Kathryn presents or endorses."

"I have found Kathryn's coaching sessions extremely valuable and relevant for my role working in a school context. Each session has always focused on the practical application of the best research and resources available. Kathryn has helped me to prioritise decisions based on my specific situation. Kathryn does not use a 'one size fits all' model but instead she personalises her coaching to make sure individual contexts are considered. Kathryn has an extraordinary breadth of knowledge and skillfully uses her expertise to advise and give ongoing support."

"Thank you, Kathryn, for your short course “The Literate Learner”! There were a lot of take-a-ways, but what particularly stood out to me were the strong links between language and literacy disorder and how much better each is supported when we also work on the other. Despite working as a speech pathologist for years, I’d never really seen the need (or had the confidence) to work literacy into my practice. Your course really brought literacy to my attention as a vital component of school-aged practice but also showed me how I could support my clients in learning the skills they need. It was also great to learn about some of the “go-to” trainings I could do to sharpen my skills across settings."

"I had the pleasure of working with Kathryn in her role of Head of Learning Engagement P-12. Kathryn brings a wealth of expertise and knowledge to the school context. As well as being dual qualified in education and health, Kathryn continues to practice in both disciplines and pursue the most up to date and current educational research to inform her practice. Kathryn is well connected with leaders in the field of children’s learning difficulties and utilises her vast network to source advice and input from the highest caliber of multi-disciplinary teams. Kathryn’s team approach to working with parents, health professionals and educators has become the benchmark which I aim to implement in other contexts."
