IT ONLY TAKES ONE HOUR TO FIND OUT WHETHER YOUR CHILD IS IN FACT DYSLEXIC OR WHETHER THEIR PROBLEMS ARE DUE TO WORKING MEMORY DYSFUNCTION -

 

                             *    NO LONG WAIT FOR AN APPOINTMENT

                             *    NO STRESS FOR CHILD OR PARENT

                             *    THOROUGH, AFFORDABLE TESTING

 

Many children are refused screening at school because of their age.  In Stockport, for example, no child can be tested under the age of eight.  We offer testing at ANY age.  Also, it can take months for the Support Services to offer an appointment due to the large volume of applications made to them.  Testing at centres such as The Dyslexia Institute in Wilmslow will take most of the day and cost several hundred pounds.  We are able to provide a INNOVATIVE, THOROUGH, STREAMLINED process taking just one hour which is carried out in the STRESS-FREE comfort of the child's own home.  The written report which you will receive can be taken into school and used to support a request for extra time in either SATs testing or GCSE. 

 

Dyslexia screening is carried out by an approved dyslexia specialist who is recognised and approved by the British Dyslexia Association, of which she is an Associate Member.  She also has a Diploma in Specific Learning Difficulties and has over 33 years' teaching experience.

 

The price for this service is £80.00
