Dr Annette Grounds
Dr Annette Grounds has a BSc in Optometry and is an accredited member of the British Association of Behavioural Optometrist, (BABO). She has a PhD in Vision Research looking at Magnocellular and Parvocellelar systems in Amblyopia and also a MSc in Developmental Neuro-Psychology. Annette has attended many interdisciplinary conferences and undertaken courses, including Johannsen’s Individual Auditory Stimulation and Working with Listening and Auditory Processing Difficulties, in children.
Annette has spent 30 years developing a multi-sensory therapy approach, to help children with a variety of visual and sensory processing problems, which are commonly found in children with a range of learning difficulties.
Annette said: “I have seen so many children change dramatically over the years; children with low self-esteem and low self-worth becoming confident young people, who have turned their lives around. It is hard to express the amazing feeling when a child returns, showing increased confidence and enjoying school, getting higher grades and a better understanding of their strengths and weakness. Accepting that they are not stupid but that they may need a little support, or need to do things in a slightly different way. Over the past 30 years I have enjoyed building up the support we can offer the amazing children we see. We are able to help them become more confident and be more successful, so that they can achieve their full potential.”
