Kathryn Crosby

A teacher and educational consultant, Kathryn has been working with children, teenagers and adults with PMLD, SLD and ASD for over 20 years. Her specialism is the creative arts, teaching music, dance, drama, and story telling. For 8 years she was Head of Creative Arts at St. Piers, working with Margaret Corke. Since then, Kathryn established a training business called Create and has been delivering training courses around the country to educators, therapists and parents in all aspects of the creative and performing arts with a focus on developing interaction through sensory approaches.

To complement the creative arts work, Kathryn qualified as a baby massage instructor, a massage in schools Trainer, and a children’s yoga teacher. She uses massage as a tool for communication extensively in nearly all her work, whether it is massage & music, story massage, or dance massage.

Kathryn also works 1 day a week in an SLD school, where she teaches music to a group of children with MSI. For the last year and a half she has been working at Chichester Festival Theatre leading a teenage and adult theatre group, both for people with severe learning difficulties and autism.

What Our Members Say

We have thousands of satisfied members since we began in 1994

Rodney House School – Manchester

We feel the online training delivered by EQUALS have been WONDERFUL.  The relevance and depth of the sessions has been fantastic, Peter is a very knowledgeable man. Having training delivered online has enabled all our teachers to attend and have discussions after the event rather than one teacher attending and disseminating which can water down the content.
Thank you so much and keep them coming!
