What are the signs to look for, how do you get a diagnosis and what can you do to help your child thrive at school?


More House School provides Ofsted Outstanding day and boarding education for 480 boys aged eight to eighteen who are intelligent, but thrive in a specialist environment because of Specific Learning Difficulties, Speech and Language disorders, and associated special educational needs.

Jonathan holds a bachelor’s degree in English Literature from the University of Southampton, and Master of Science degree in Educational Leadership and Management from the University of Leicester.  He completed the Graduate Teacher Programme with the University of Southampton and holds Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). 

A keen church-bell ringer, Jonathan is the Ringing Master and Tower Captain at St Andrew’s, Farnham. Married to Lizzy, also a teacher and, with two young children, Jonathan is also a governor at Treloar’s School and College, Alton, which provides high-quality education and care to children and young people with physical disabilities.

She has also written on education and family life for The Telegraph, Times and Guardian, among others.

Her three children, one with SEN, have taken very different educational paths, attending 12 different schools between them with one child home educated through GCSEs. All have ended up doing well. "The only thing that matters", she says, "is whether a school is right for a particular child, something that glowing exam results and fabulous facilities won’t necessarily tell you. Getting the right school for the right child is endlessly satisfying."

Jo PettyJo Petty is director of the Dyslexia Teaching Centre. She trained originally as a speech and language therapist but has extensive experience with children and adults with dyslexia and special education needs.

The centre has been at the forefront of full spectrum SEN support in central London for decades.

Jo is one of the most experienced SEN therapists in the country with a lifetime's career in the sector.
