The Literacy and Learning Centre is a service, which provides help specifically for children who are experiencing difficulties with reading, spelling, and learning.
The centre was established to provide support to children who are struggling with literacy and learning at school. The Centre aims to provide support to all students with literacy and learning difficulties, and takes a special interest in providing a multidisciplinary service for children with more complex learning needs or who have not progressed despite accessing remedial support. The success of our approach is based in the collaboration between our Psychologist and Remedial Teachers, who work together to provide the highest standard of remedial support to your child.
The Literacy and Learning Centre can help your child in three ways by identifying for you:
- What the problem is — by providing a comprehensive diagnostic assessment service by a Clinical Psychologist specialising in literacy and learning difficulties (click here for more details)
- What to do to help — by providing detailed recommendations and /or referral to our remedial tutoring programme (click here for more details)
- Rebuilding confidence and self-esteem — by providing your child with programmes that promote confidence and teach strategies for managing other problems that are common in children with literacy and learning difficulties, such as anxiety and low self-esteem. (click here for more details)
