About me

Teacher - Mother - Master's Student - Literacy Specialist - Learning Disability Advocate and Specialist - Microsoft Educator Expert

My name is Alana and I am a Perth based Teacher of over 14 years. I have taught a range of subjects and year levels but specialise in teaching students with a Learning Disorder such as Dyslexia or Dysgraphia.

If you have a child with a Learning Disability or Difficulty, I can help you navigate the future. I have many strategies that can be implemented in the classroom by your child's teacher as well as at home to support your child achieve the best outcomes possible.

I am a mother of two and understand the complexities of family life as well as the stress that can develop when a child is struggling in school.

I am passionate about educating students who struggle with schooling and as well as educating parents on their rights and options to support their child.

The aim of the DDA is to ensure that all students are provided with access to the curriculum and are given the opportunity to demonstrate their skills, knowledge and understandings, on the same basis as their peers. The Australian Disability Standards for Education (2005) provides guidance to teachers, school administrators and parents on their rights and responsibilities with respect to the DDA.
