About Us

With over three decades of assessing and supporting those with dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyscalculia, Planet Diversity was created by Jill Russell, who opened The Dyslexia Centre in 2001. Being dyslexic herself, she knew there was a better way to provide the support so desperately needed.

With our expert and experienced staff, The Dyslexia Centre has now grown and become Planet Diversity, as we aim to support the neuro-diverse community and as so many profiles of learning co-exist.  We work with the following neuro-diverse profiles of learning: dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia and ASD (PDA and ODD included). We are proud of what we do and achieve each and every day.

We have achieved a 100% pass rate with our functional skills courses.  Our results are second to none and are only possible to the individualised programmes of support and training we provide.  

Being part of the home educating community and for someone who has tried almost every product and service available on both a personal and professional level, we, as a community, are vulnerable and this can lead to companies undermining our confidence in our own abilities.  The Shine Learning Programme developed from this need.  Many home educating families prioritise our children’s education, limiting our income.  Specialist support is not a luxury and should be available to all, regardless of where you live and your income. 

Our results are second to none, producing individualised programmes of support and training where it is needed. Why not get in touch and see how we can meet help?
