South West


Kelly Goodfellow:

I am a Senior SpLD Practitioner and Teaching Fellow at University West of England Bristol. I have worked at UWE for five years, as a specialist SpLD tutor, diagnostic assessor of SpLD, team leader and consultant in SpLD awareness and inclusivity for staff.

My previous roles include; specialist SpLD tutor in Further Education in Cardiff, specialist teacher and SENCO in the private sector and a primary school teacher.

Myself, and James Lock are your regional co-ordinators for ADSHE South West, this covers the Bath to Lands’ End region. We have been facilitating workshops since 2016 in Bath, Bristol, Exeter and Plymouth.

All previous workshops have been accredited as ADSHE quality CPD events, topics have included: Analysing case studies to develop good practice, ADHD strategies, assistive technology solutions and revision/exam strategies. The range of workshops have been varied, relevant and engaging, judging by the feedback received. Each workshop includes the chance to engage in professional peer supervision.


James Lock:

Hi folks. I am James Lock, one of the regional coordinators for the ADSHE South West Regional group.  Kelly and I have been organising meetings twice a year for ADSHE SW since 2015, and it has been great getting to meet fellow SpLD specialists from all around the region. I work at the University of Bath as a Disability Adviser, having previously worked there as a Specialist Tutor for around 5 years.

I did my PG Dip at what was known as the University of Wales, Newport, and finished my MA there under its new name the University of South Wales. My MA research was focused on the student experience of using specialist dyslexia AT, and I continue to be interested in the involvement of AT in student learning.

Outside of work I love being out and about with my family at National Trust places, and I like running, playing the guitar and craft beer (not necessarily in that order!).
