DOES YOUR CHILD STRUGGLE WITH LEARNING IN LITERACY AND / OR MATHS?
Learning difficulties can severely hinder learning and enjoyment of school and the education experience.
Does your child struggle with reading, spelling or writing?
Do they mix up letters or jumble their sentences?
Or perhaps they have trouble with numbers, time, symbols or maths?
Or do they have trouble copying from the blackboard or often become frustrated in the classroom environment?
If so, they may suffer from a specific learning disorder such as Dyslexia, Dyscalculia or Dysgraphia. Other concerns can also be assessed such as poor working memory or processing speed.
Giftedness and Intellectual Disability can also be assessed.
