About The 3D Centre

The 3D Centre was established in 2004 by Dr Mary Howard, an experienced teacher and occupational therapist with additional qualifications in teaching children and adults with Specific Learning Difficulties – Dyslexia (RSA Diploma, Associate Member of the British Dyslexia Association), physical disabilities (Dip. P.H, University of London Institute of Education), Developmental Co-ordination Disorder/Dyspraxia (Post Graduate Certificate, University of Wales, Newport) and Handwriting (Post Graduate Certificate, University of London Institute of Education).

Mary From The 3D Centre

Mary has extensive experience as a Support Teacher and Special Needs Co-ordinator. She was a tutor on a Certificate Course in Specific Learning Difficulties for teachers for five years, is secretary of West Yorkshire PATOSS and a member of the executive committee of the National Handwriting Association.

In January 2000 she set up an independent consultancy support service to schools.  Requests for assessment and tuition from parents led to the founding of The 3D Centre which is now operating on a smaller scale, with assessments and sale of resources through the 3D Shop,  following a move from the premises in Clare Road.
