About Barbara HoiFounder of Sydney Dyslexia and The One Year School
Helping Adults and Children with Dyslexia Achieve Life-Changing Results for Over 15 Years
Hello friends and welcome!
I’m Barbara Hoi, founder of Sydney Dyslexia and The One Year School.
I know navigating through dyslexia can be overwhelming. Having been through this journey myself with my son nearly 17 years ago, I turned my attention to learning everything possible about dyslexia.
I’ve been trained in the Davis method in 2005, have founded ‘Sydney Dyslexia’ and ‘Autism Sydney’ and have written three books about Dyslexia (The Right Brain for the Right Time, Nurturing the Secret Garden, Learning your Times Tables in Three Bold Steps).
What I found through many years of study, and working with hundreds of clients, is that dyslexia isn’t something to be ‘fixed’.
I want to transform the misconception that dyslexia is a learning disability. It’s a learning difference, often linked with difficulties learning in a school environment and showing one’s full potential. The difference, if cultivated, is ultimately a gift.
I’m excited to share with you the joy of confidence that comes with understanding how to focus, read with ease, and being able to fulfil your potential and go for your dreams.
“Barbara you are an amazing woman that has been the angel to so many kids and adults just like me. You showed me who I truly am and will always be and how to accept that. There aren’t enough words to describe you. I am truly and utterly thankful that I was able to meet someone like you in my life. You have been a great large part of who I am and who I will grow to be.”

What Clients are Saying about Barbara Hoi
Improved self-esteem, positivity and school results
“Barbara took us on a journey of discovery, and emotional healing. She repaired self esteem, equipped us with some really useful techniques and started us on a road of positivity and success which honours my son’s unique talents. My son now enjoys reading and is often awarded 10 out of 10 with spelling. He now enjoys school….Completing the… programme does take some commitment and time, but it is time very well spent, and Barbara equips students and parents so very well for success. Robert and I both thank Barbara from the bottom of our hearts.”
