Study Skills Tutor (SpLD)

As a consequence of Cheri’s own neurodiversity, they are keenly aware of the transformative power of education and the value of organisations which facilitate these opportunities. Cheri’s understanding of the social, emotional and economic implications of being marginalised through misunderstanding of neurodiversity, informs their practice.

Cheri finds it a joy to watch students transform their lives by; contextualising their experience, developing practical strategies to scaffold areas of weakness and developing an understanding of their strengths. Cheri is an executive member of ADSHE my professional body, has contributed to a book on Study Skills and has given a TED talk on an alternative to the written format of assessment. Cheri has many projects on the go and uses their creative pursuits to keep their creative, neurodiverse brain thriving.
