What can parents / carers do to help children with Dyslexia?
Communication with professionals is of primary importance when supporting a child with dyslexia, as it can all too quickly develop into children falling behind with their school work and starting to loose confidence with themselves.
We can supply qualified dyslexia tutoring support via tutors who are experienced in teaching students with dyslexia. We liaise with schools and copy parents into these conversations via email, as we know how important for the child’s success that we all liaise together and mirror what happens in school at home to ensure the student is able to have a deeper understanding of the subject knowledge and of what is being asked of them. We also request test results, in areas where students may have lost marks, our tutors will work on these specific areas over the next half term, thus ensuring there are no gaps forming within the subject being studied for.
Will my child get support within his / her exams?
Students studying for their GCSE’s or A levels who have Dyslexia will receive additional time for suiting their exams, they may be sat 1-1 whilst they have their exams with a teacher or they may be sat within a small group. We have examination officers who have many years of experience with marking exams. Therefore when they work with students with Dyslexia they will focus on exam technique, as well as curriculum content. We will also confirm with the school the amount of additional time and materials being used within the exam by the student enabling us to fully prepare students for their exams.
