Hi, I’m Diane, Educational Consultant, and I carry out all of the Educational MOTs.
I have 25 years teaching experience, and was awarded ‘Recognition in Additional Support Needs’ by The General Teaching Council in 2019.
More about me…
After gaining my Bachelor of Education (Honours) degree in 1994, I worked as a primary teacher in several schools across Dumfries and Galloway. In 2008, I became an ASL teacher, and three years later, went on to complete my postgraduate certificate in Additional Support for Learning.
In 2013, I was promoted to Principal Teacher of ASL, across Moffat Cluster (a mainstream all-through school 3-18, and a feeder primary school) where I managed a team of learning assistants, and was responsible for identifying and addressing a wide range of needs, including ASD, ADHD, attachment disorder, dyslexia and dyscalculia.
In 2019, after being awarded ‘Professional Recognition in Additional Support Needs’ by the General Teaching Council, I handed in my notice and moved to West Lothian to follow my dream of setting up Educational MOT; a service which helps children and parents, by identifying: where the child is at in their learning, how the child is learning, which learning strategies are most successful for them, and what they (child and parent/tutor) can do to boost learning (and confidence).

Educational MOT definitely delivers value for money. My two children each had a session and had so much fun while they were there. Diane’s pedagogy and knowledge, and how well she works with children is impressive. She identified my children’s strengths and development needs within literacy and numeracy while making it interesting for them. When I received the reports I was also impressed with the level of detail provided and can’t recommend enough! I am an extremely happy parent/customer.
