What do the teachers and teaching assistants who have attended our courses recently think about the course?

    "On completion of the Sounds~Write course, I would like to formally acknowledge the wonderful tutor whom made the course an absolute pleasure to complete while I am on holidays. Mary Gladstone is a true asset to your company and her power to inspire is amazing. I have walked away from this course today excited to embark upon a new learning adventure with many students whom I feel have been let down by an educational system which is overload with 'stuff'. Mary presented the course in such a manner I was eager to go home and get straight into imparting my new skills and knowledge upon my children. I must admit, each day when I returned home, they were eagerly awaiting the next exciting activity I wanted to trial with them. As a parent and an educator I would like to say thank you for the opportunity to learn from a passionate practitioner who makes it all so exciting. I look forward to many successfull adventures with the students I come in contact with now and feel extremely confident I WILL make a difference."

    Mary Gladstone

    Mary is a Registered Trainer and tutor in the Sounds~Write method and trained with John Walker and Susan Case, the authors of the Sounds~Write programme. Mary is a qualified primary school teacher with 28 years experience both in Australia and the United Kingdom, twenty-four of which have been in working with children who have learning and behavioural difficulties.

    She holds a Diploma to teach pupils with Specific Learning Difficulties (Dyslexia) and is an accredited trainer for Protective Behaviours.

    Mary lives in the rural city of Lismore, located on the eastern side of Australia, on the far north coast of New South Wales. Lismore is conveniently located only 2½ hours south of Queensland’s capital Brisbane (by car) and a 3-hour flight from Sydney, capital of New South Wales. Training for groups of up to six people can be accommodated at the family home, the ground floor converting to a conference centre, or at nearby venues for larger groups. Delegates normally make their own accommodation arrangements, but nearby hotels/motels are reasonably priced, and details can be provided on request. Local schools who desire training normally provide a room for the duration of the course.

    Australia is a large country; therefore an “on the road” training facility is also available. Mary is happy to travel to interstate venues; reasonable travelling and accommodation charges will apply. All display equipment is provided, unless facilities are available at the venue.
