Henrik attended the University of Edinburgh, graduating with a MA of Arts (Hons) in Psychology. His dissertation was done in the realm of social psychology and took the form of a discourse analysis of the noted British performer Derren Brown. Since university, his interest has shifted from social psychology towards education and developmental psychology.
These interests led him to work as a tutor in Hong Kong, where he became well versed in phonetic approaches to language acquistion. For over a year he trained ESL learners, mostly using Oxford’s Read Write Inc. program, a synthetic phonics approach. He has since acquired Orton-Gillingham training and now provides literacy education using Orton-Gillingham approach and the Barton Reading & Spelling program. These services are targeted at children with developemental dyslexia or late language acquisition. His services are also available to literacy challenged or dyslexic adults. The Orton-Gillingham approach is recommended by the International Dyslexia Association, and more information can be found here.
