Amanda is a highly experienced Educational Consultant & Lecturer on Working Memory and its relationship to learning and reading. Amanda brings to each school and lecture a passion for education and for bridging gaps between research and practical classroom strategies. Not only are her lectures engaging and informative but Amanda is able to make even the most mundane of topics worthy of laughter.
Amanda is finalising her PhD in Education at the University of Newcastle examining the impact strategy instruction has on children with working memory deficits and reading disabilities. Amanda is dedicated to advocacy and lobbying for change in reading programs in our education system. Amanda’s PhD will allow the utilisation of 8 years of doctoral study and her 23rd year of academic study to begin to influence change and advocate for children who are slipping through the gaps in the current reading system.
