Janice set up Freedom Literacy as a way to share the tools and strategies she has found to be highly effective in her work as a literacy educator. Her initial search for these effective strategies was both professionally and personally motivated as a literacy specialist and the mother of a dyslexic son.
Janice leverages her teaching and literacy intervention experience, in both Primary and Secondary sectors, in her professional practice. She has facilitated literacy professional learning and development for several years and is accredited to enable schools to access the Central PLD Fund. Janice empowers educators to grow in knowledge of the literacy evidence base and in wisdom of application.
The frustration and heartbreak of having a child who is not thriving in school because of literacy difficulties is understood by Janice. She knows that whānau want to access specialist teaching to support their children who have missed out on the targeted, effective instruction they need to soar in life.
Janice passionately communicates her own learning to help educators and whānau understand the solutions available to them and the potential pitfalls to avoid.
