Dyslexia screenings & Current News

Screening4Dyslexia can screen children age 5 years up to the age of 16 years.  If you are worried about your child's progress at school, then your child maybe part of the 10% of the population who is showing signs of a Specific Learning Difficulty.  Screenings are computerised and will give an indicative score as to the likelihood of your child being 'at risk'. They focus on 3 key areas; phonological processing, auditory sequential memory & phonics decoding skills.  Remember, you don't need a full diagnosis to start a successful intervention. That is what this service is all about.  We do NOT diagnose your child, we provide screenings.  Join Paloma Forde in July for one of her knowledge packed webinars!

Specialised Tuition & Growth Mindset Coaching

The Specialised tuition uses a combination of resources and tools.  A Multi-sensory approach to learning is offered based on the Orton-Gillingham philosophy which we know does work.  All tutoring comes in blocks, that way there is room for continuous review.  The work undertaken can be measured, as all students start with a 'placement' test which is then reviewed at the end of each piece of 'block work'.  Group discounts apply. (Request details when you enquire)  

Our Growth Mindset Coaching Course for kids is offered over a 6 week period.  This will focus on the Carol Dweck philosophy of working on the differences between 'fixed mindset' & 'growth mindset'.  Email us today to find out more information about all our services.
