Meet the team!
you and your learners reach your SEN goals.
At PAGS®, we're passionate about empowering learners with diverse needs. Our founder, Feliciea, dedicated many years to supporting children with autism, SLD, MLD, severe challenging behavior, and other needs in independent SEND schools in the UK. Her journey within the realm of special education led to the development of PAGS®.
Our team has worked tirelessly alongside SENCO and SEND headteachers to better understand your needs. The dedicated efforts have enabled us to capture and address developmental challenges, learning difficulties, anxieties, and other obstacles, providing you with a comprehensive approach to assessing and monitoring the needs of your learners.
Here’s why we embarked on this epic journey to create PAGS®:
The lived experience of one of our dedicated SENCOs encompasses the essence of PAGS. When his son made the difficult decision to leave school, it was a bitter moment but not surprising. He had spent several years being defined by his dyslexia. School seemed to be about what he couldn’t do: write, spell, keep up with the text.
As his challenges grew, so did the amount of writing tasks, intensifying his frustration and anxiety. In this deficit model, he became defined by his condition. Remarkable strengths like being able to calculate volume and irregular areas in his head with ease, or the fact that he could see the answer to a lateral problem while others were still reading went unnoticed. Unlike PAGS®, his school missed his strengths and only saw the gaps. And unlike PAGS®, they measured him against his class instead of against himself.
Such experiences and more are the driving force behind PAGS.
