“To everyone sprinkling droplets of support in the world of dyslexia don’t ever think it is not enough, because together we are making waves and creating an ocean of support” (Sharon Hall 2022)

Sharon Hall lives with her family in a small village in Aberdeenshire. She has spent most of her working life in the Royal Navy as an Air Traffic Control Officer but a family move to the Middle East bought with it a change in career and the start of an inspirational dyslexia journey.

Sharon’s son was identified as dyslexic at the age of four and, like many familiar stories, the more she learnt and understood about dyslexia the more she realised that she too is dyslexic; a true eureka moment! 

Having gained her MA in Special Educational Needs at UEL Sharon felt it was time to share her personal experiences so she embarked on what has become a life long ambition to change the way the world sees dyslexia. Sharon began supporting local families, schools and businesses  from a small office shed where Dyslexia Routes was born. Eight years later Sharon has now gained international acclaim with her public speaking, reaching as far afield as Hong Kong and Kenya.

Celebrating eight years as the founder of Dyslexia Routes is a milestone achievement and the future looks bright; Sharon is excited to grow the company. Sharon brings passion, buckets of personal experience, and time; she always has time to listen, support, and advise wherever you are on your dyslexia journey.
