    Dr Pauline Cogan trained as a Primary School Teacher in Carysfort Training College, Blackrock, Co Dublin in 1967.  She graduated with a BA in languages (1970) and a Higher Diploma in Education (1971) from University College Dublin.

    Pauline has had a life-long interest in social and educational justice with a principal focus on learning difficulties.   For over a decade she has intensely studied the causes of literacy difficulties in children and has operationalised this knowledge into child and classroom friendly tasks.  She was awarded her PhD by Trinity College, Dublin, in 2012, through research in this field.

    With the help of teachers, the school community, the DES and other bodies and driven by research, policy and practice, Pauline has developed TEST2R.  This is a comprehensive test used to screen and pin-point the emergent literacy skills which a 5 – 6 year old child needs to be taught.  It also provides an individual report on each child and pointers to intervention/resources.

    Pauline is an honorary member of the Board of Dyslexia International Tools & Technologies which is a portal to UNESCO.  She is on the National Executive Committee of the Irish Learning Support Association (ILSA) and is the Editor of LEARN – the peer reviewed journal of that body.  She is also a Chartered Psychologist of the Psychological Society of Ireland.
