information, advice, assessment and support for children
Is your child struggling at school?
There are many types of learning disability of which dyslexia is
only one. In some cases, diagnosis can be difficult. Only an assessment
with a specialist
teacher or psychologist can determine if your child is dyslexic. Three
or four children in every class struggle to read, write or understand
These children do not always get the help they need due to lack
of specialist staff and resources and their difficulties go
unnoticed or unexplained. Without
correct identification and intervention, dyslexia can be a barrier
to learning and lead to failure at school, exclusion or anti-social
behaviour and their
self-confidence and self-esteem can be severely damaged.
