Katy Parkinson is the inspiration and creator of Sound Training. Prior to developing the Sound Training programme and setting up Sound Training Ltd, she was a senior Learning and Language adviser in a large urban unitary authority. It was here, and whilst teaching and observing mainstream pupils who were experiencing difficulties with reading, that Katy used her interest and expertise in phonology (and its effect on reading) to develop Sound Training.
Katy has 27 years’ teaching experience, specialising in supporting pupils with dyslexia. She holds a Post Graduate Certificate (PGC) in Special Education, a PGC in Dyslexia and is an Associate Member of the British Dyslexia Association (AMBDA).
Her commitment to enabling every child to fulfil their potential is underpinned by the belief that pupils have been, and will continue to be, her best teachers!
