3. Can I become a Shinnick Method – Changing Dyslexia Coach?
We have trained Coaches previously and are reviewing this process to encompass wider learning challenges. Once this has been reviewed we would be available and training these publicly again. 
We have a specific programme for clients and regardless of your prior training, we require that you take clients through the programme as we train it. The process looks simple and is in reality quite technical. The client experience is that it is easy, fun and words and letters just suddenly untangle for the first time.

The age range is a wide span, the client would need to be able to communicate and follow instructions. We have worked with and treated clients aged from 6 years to 50 years old successfully. Where we have worked with 6 year olds it tends to be in a school environment. Older children are generally from 8 years old when a problem has been clearly identified, teens to adults when issues rise with work situations or relationships.
