What we can do!
Screening for Dyslexia is done at the Clinic. The screening looks for certain markers often present in Dyslexia. Phonological (underpinning problems with auditory processing) testing, reading and comprehension assessments are carried out to determine the extent of the problem and if a full Dyslexia test is required.
Comprehensive testing is available with a report for schools.
This is NOT just another teaching service. Specialist teaching is DIFFERENT.
Dyslexic children and those with Specific Learning Difficulties learn differently to other individuals. They require individually tailored programs that are sequenced correctly and multisensory. The term multisensory refers to the strategy of involving and linking the student’s eye, ear and hand to bolster learning. Often students have compensated for weaknesses and masked their difficulties which means they have poor foundations from which they are working and rely on guessing to find the answer.
Teaching sessions aim to teach word attack skills and strategies to build a stronger foundation. Success is achieved through being exposed to a metacognitive teaching strategy and the most up-to-date resources available that are multisensory and support the working memory.
The way teaching is organised
The approach we use is multisensory a term that refers to the strategy involving and linking the student’s eye, ear and hand to bolster learning.
Group sessions have no more than 2 students and all work on their own individual programs and are taught by a specialist teacher using the latest techniques and practices. This includes assistive technologies to reinforce learning techniques. Homework is given each week for review and to practice reading fluency and comprehension.
Our aim is to make each student feel comfortable, experience success, gain knowledge and practice through a multisensory phonics approach...
