Dyslexia screening

We have the Lexion screening software which will provide some analysis of your child’s learning differences and if appropriate, there are exercises you can take home to run on your own computer.

Colorimeter screening

Some children have sensitivity to the the contrast of black print on white paper and this may be impinging on their ability to read.  A simple screening will establish if this is a problem or not.

Befriending

If you are faced with problems with the LA or school in geting the support your child needs, our Befriender can provide advice and support.

Meeting and talking to people with similar problems and successes

One of the most successful aspects of a support group is meeting with others who have, or have had similar problems.  It is not just a ‘moaning session’, but the chance to share good ideas and find solutions to apparently unsolvable problems.
