A little about This is Dyslexia ...
If you are concerned that your child is not making the progress expected in literacy and you wonder if they could be dyslexic; an assessment may be the answer and a starting point in your journey of discovery.
The in-depth assessment process would provide the opportunity to identify strengths and weaknesses in the learners cognitive profile. The detailed report will provide individualised strategies that can be shared with school and used at home.
We are based in Whitstable, Kent and offer both in person and remote assessments to suit your needs. Please get in touch to find out more.
Working with Laura has made a real difference for our family. Her expertise and guidance have helped us understand our child's dyslexia better and provided us with practical strategies to support their learning. We are grateful for the ongoing support.
For adults & children
Over the years, there has been much debate on the importance of the early identification of dyslexia. It is felt that this helps to ensure that an individuals self esteem is not negatively affected. It also enables support and interventions to take place whilst a child is still at school.
Many parents have reported that although they initially didn't want a 'label' for their child, they have seen that when the child comes to understand why they think differently they develop a growth mindset.
Although early identification has been shown as beneficial, this is not always possible for everyone. We complete many assessments of adults who are successful in their career but feel there is something holding them back from progressing further.
There has been much recent press surrounding neurodiversity and the benefits of dyslexic thinking in the workplace. It is widely understood that individuals with dyslexia have a creative mindset and are great problem solvers. Individuals also learn how to overcome their difficulties and develop resilience at an earlier age.
Before my assessment, I had no idea that my struggles with reading and organisation were due to dyslexia. The assessment not only provided me with a diagnosis but also gave me the confidence to seek the necessary accommodations at work. I highly recommend their services to anyone who suspects they may have dyslexia
Dyslexia is a learning difficulty that primarily affects the skills involved in accurate and fluent word reading and spelling. Characteristic features of dyslexia are difficulties in phonological awareness, verbal memory and verbal processing speed. Rose, 2009
