1:1 coaching and advice for actors with Specific Learning Differences (such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, visual stress or ADHD) 

This actor-focused approach to dyslexia coaching places your individual learning style at the heart of the work, and encourages you to develop a proactive approach to your learning. We will work together to remove blocks by developing an awareness of your unique learning style and how you learn best. By building on your strengths and applying strategies to support your process, you can prepare for any eventuality (in the audition room, in rehearsal and in everyday life). Dyslexia strategies are specifically tailored for the actor and cover: sight-reading, speed-reading, memorising text and movement, concentration, organisation, letter-writing, among others. If you have a report that you would like to discuss please email in advance to info@deborahleveroy.com.  

Please let us know prior to your session one or two areas you would like to focus on.

These sessions are suitable for those who have had a dyslexia assessment in the past, and for those who have never had a formal identification, but would like to explore what it means.

Deborah Leveroy is an actor and a dyslexia & acting coach. Her PhD, entitled ‘Enabling Performance: Dyslexia and Acting Practice’ at the University of Kent, explored dyslexia, inclusion and best practice in the context of actor training institutions and the wider industry.  She is a learning support/dyslexia tutor at ALRA and Arts Ed. Publications include: 'Dyslexia and Sight-Reading for Actors' in Dyslexia, Music and the Performing Arts (British Dyslexia Association) and  'Enabling Performance: Dyslexia, (Dis)ability and Reasonable Adjustment' in Theatre, Dance and Performer Training (Routledge Journal). She is the drama advisor to the music committee of the British Dyslexia Association, has run dyslexia workshops at the Actors Centre, National Student Drama Festival, Moscow Art Theatre School and TaPRA.
