Who is the trainer?

Cathy Parvin trained as a Registered General Nurse, an Orthopaedic Nurse and completed the Further and Adult Teachers Certificate (Course 730/7307).  Following training and mentoring by the Dyspraxia Foundation, she became the Education Officer (West Midlands) for the Dyspraxia Foundation in 2010. A funded two year post delivering training in schools for teaching staff on dyspraxia. On completion of this project, Cathy was invited onto the Dyspraxia Foundation Education Panel as an advisor and asked if she would continue as a Dyspraxia Foundation "approved" trainer.

Currently she is Director of Dyspraxia Education an organisation which supports children with dyspraxia/DCD in education. She is a visiting university lecturer for SENCo Award, P.E, PGCE, BA honours and Early Years courses. She has delivered conference seminars both nationally and in Europe.

Having also completed training with the National Handwriting Association she was invited to become a committee member and trainer for the NHA. However, her greatest teacher by far, is her daughter Lydia who has dyspraxia.

Dyspraxia Education is a “Not For Profit” organisation whose primary role is to support children and young people affected by dyspraxia (DCD) in education. We do this by running free helplines, visiting schools, advising families, teaching staff and other professionals. We raise our own funds through the training packages and products which we offer.
