Specific Learning Difficulty

We have a Psychologist trained in assessment of Dyslexia, a Specific learning difficulty. While some children with Dyslexia do reverse some letters and words, many do not. Current research indicates that the underlying difficulties for most with Dyslexia relates to subtle difficulties with language and sounds.

Our Occupational Therapists can screen for Dysgraphia if concerns have been raised about longstanding handwriting issues. We look at letter formation, placement, orientation, motor memory, pencil grasp, posture, speed of writing and content of writing. Your child may benefit from typing for long writing pieces or extra time at school to complete work.

We can write a report for school to support these adaptations if this is deemed necessary for your child or adolescent. Before a comprehensive assessment is completed, you should get your child’s vision and hearing checked.
